Hello - my five year old daughter has been throwing up phlegm for the past month. This has been happening on average about 3 times a week (always on preschool days) just as she is about to have lunch. She will start to eat, throw up the phlegm and then she continues eating. We have seen a TCM doctor who said she has excessive heat in her body and suggested we add additional fruits to her diet (which we have done). Has anyone else experienced something like this?
I also get a slight earache and my left ear feels blocked. Nausea also keeps coming and going and i have been throwing up phlegm which was clear to start with and then started going a slight yellow colour and the last time i threw up it was a very pale orange/ peach colour, all ive wanted to do today is sleep, what is wrong with me?
I seem to be throwing up alot of the time, at least 3 times a week. I get dizzyness and tiredness but iam not pregnant. I go to the doctors and they tell me its just a common cold but i have had this for months now and i seem to be very prone to water infections, what is up with me?

Every morning for the past year since I recovered from the Pertussis, I wake up and I'm full of phlegm which makes it hard to breath. I cough/ choke on it and my gag reflex (which has increased since I was sick) kicks in and I throw up phlegm. Throughout the day I have phlegm at the back of my throat and all the way down my airways (which is very uncomfortable btw) and it occasionally comes up on its on or I have to cough it up or I will choke/gag/ and throw it up.
If I dont hack up the phlegm I get ill to my stomach. I can feel the phlegm just sitting there, becoming a larger amount to spit out. I've never sought out any doctor over this matter. Thought it would help me to go online and find out if others have this problem. Many foods and drinks can irritate the problem. Sometimes I chew gum - it only cures the situation for a short time. And some gums don't work at all.
I have an almost 4 yr old daughter, who at night wakes up coughing, gagging on to much phlegm, and follows with throwing up. Last night she threw up 6 times. No this is no the flu, or something she ate. This happens once a week. She generally wakes up with alot of phlegm and has a hard time coughing it out. Any words on this??
Mornings are the worst, I wake up with my throat full of phlegm. I constantly get the urge to cough to get rid of it and sometimes the coughing sets off the chain reaction so I have to throw up. This continues until about lunchtime so usually I dont get to have my first meal of the day until after then. I also start coughing a lot during meals, and this continues for a while afterwards. It makes it hard to hold down a meal when I am sometimes pushed to almost bring it up again!
If i do anything slightly energetic , even carrying a bag of shopping after 200 yrds the coughing starts and im throwing up phlegm again, not nice if in public. My doctors now seem to admit they have no idea. It all started 10 years ago with a cold that lasted a month, the phlegm came, when i coughed it up it was so thick it was still in my stomach, as i strggled to pull it from my mouth i could feel it coming up my throat, then i was getting a mug full + of phlegm a night.
Many times when I am eating with my mother-in -law, towards the end of the meal, she starts coughing, to the point of vomiting, but it is only phlegm-- clear, and with some traces of food. She will sit there for about 10 minutes waiting for the phlegm to come up because she cannot swallow it as she has tried. It almost only happens while eating chicken, pork, and sometimes fish(if she doesn't fork or break it up to the point of being flakey in her dish).
Its like Its stuck in my throat and I try to cough it out but I end up throwing everything up including my food. Very Not pleasant. But it wasn't as bad as it is now. Now Its happening twice every other week, to every week. The last time I was on medication for Sinusitis that my doctor gave me, and I threw up more mucus then food. I was looking up Sinusitis and Its supposed to have nasal inflammation and I do not have that, but I cough up mucus every day always after I eat.
that i cant swallow it neither i can spit it out ...and that makes me feel like throwing up if i see any thing dirty or if i smell some thing bad ... the problem now has become worse ..i have around 102 - 103F temp all the time because of this problem ... i just have to take a pill for fever and for the next 6 hours i have no fever but i know its coming back as the phlegm in my chest is increasing and i will throw up huge quantity of it .. i dont know why ...
it's typically when he eats and drinks but at one point he was throwing up a lot in the car (although he hasn't done that in a while). He has asthma as well so that could be part of the issue as he's constantly coughing when he eats. The past couple of weeks it's gotten bad to the point where i think he has a phobia of food because whatever he eats, comes ups. although he can eat crackers and ice cream and is fine. I'm at a loss. I have been to the dr and we did tests of his esophogas (sp?
My surgeon insisted it was due to trama from the breathing tube and not from the surgical site. However if you are throwing up blood versus coughing it up, an ER visit or call to your doctor would be warranted.

Make sure also that she drinks a lot of water and that she gets a lot of rest. Do not worry about her throwing up. Sometimes it is children's way of expelling the phlegm.

I'm coughing so bad that I'm throwing up...any ideas on what can help it? I've done it twice now, and I think I pulled a muscle in my tummy from coughing and throwing up at the same time.
I am coughing up green phlegm. I am a 38 year old female smoker, 1-2 packs aday. I know I need to quit. I was diagnosed with mild COPD about a year ago, but have no problems breathing normally. The cough has only been bothering me for the last 2 days, but it is almost bright flourescent green. I have PND, but not too bad. I did have a positive TB skin test, and took a pill for 3 months about 12 years ago. My question is: 1. Is the phlegm consistant with bronchitis, and 2.

Hello there, I am a 21 yr old male college student and everytime I wake up, I have a ton of drainage in my nose and throat. I blow my nose about 30 times in the first 15 minutes that I wake up... the excessive snot/phlegm gets caught in my throat causing me to "hawk up loogies" ( I am sorry for the slang, I am not sure how else to say it ).
Now, for the past 5 days i've woken up feeling really sik, and keep gagging, (although i'm not actually being sik) only now the horrible phlegm and sik feeling is lasting all day. I have to sleep sitting up (otherwise my throat get really clogged with thick phlegm), which is very uncomfortable and I am hardly sleeping now because i feel so sick and keep having panic attacks.

I have now started dry heaving/throwing up almost right when I wake up just with all the mucus in my system I guess. Could this really be from allergies? I went to a dr on Monday and Wednesday, both different and both say it is just allergies. The mucus is clear. I am miserable and have been trying allergy medicine but that doesn't seem to stop the morning misery. This is the first year I have ever been like this and I have lived here my whole life.
Sunday was bad, Monday was the same, Tuesday BAD, and now Wednesday I feel EVEN WORSE! Please I hate Nausea and I hate Throwing up because I'm extremely afraid to do that, I want to eat but I can't cause of this annoying Stomach. Please you got to help me! I used to be this funny loving person and now that I'm nauseous...I'm always in this Depress mode.
John, the long-term effects of the radiation could be a problem, and it should be checked out. If he's throwing up undigested food several hours after eating, the problem could be gastroparesis which essentially is delayed gastric emptying. But that's only a guess. Your father's condition needs to be evaluated by a GI doc and some testing needs to be done to determine the true cause of the problem.
I always feel like phlegm is in my throat. That make me feel nausea and throwing up, but nothing never comes up. Sometimes I make my self throw up then I feel fine. Not sure what's going on with my body. Maybe someone can help me figure it out. My chest feels uncomfortable with aches and pains but still they say it's not your heart which is good but still. What else can I do? Just eating is a problem. Please help feeling helpless and depressed.
