Chest congestion green mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion green mucus


Avatar f tn After being on Copaxone for 3 months I developed difficulty breathing and severe chest congestion and it will not go away even after taking broad spectrum antibiotics. My dr. denies any connection with Copaxone. But it is the only thing that has changed in my life - taking Copaxone injections. Has anyone heard of a link.
Avatar n tn It started off as a minor sore throat, nothing that really bothered me and a bit of a stuffy nose. Within two days both of those were replaced with chest congestion, tightness, and a wet cough producing green phlegm. Now its been about 5 days of wheezing and this cough i can feel the congestion deep down in my lungs. When i breathe i can feel the phlegm and mucus and i wheeze when i exhale. It is usually worse at night before i go to sleep. Im not quite sure If i should go see my doctor.
Avatar n tn This past week, I have been experiencing chest congestion and coughing up greenish phlegm but have no cold symptoms. Am asthmatic but has been under control for many years. Even though still taking Singulair and Advair daily, have been having shortness of breath and am very tired. Am also using Proventil which I rarely use and it's barely making a difference. Even something as simple as turning from side to side in bed is leaving me breathless.
6753624 tn?1389389867 Pure lemon juice for congestion. Steam. Honey for cough. Lots of green tea and oj. Medicine just puts you to sleep. Cold lasts just as long,.so why take it?
Avatar m tn I ended up taking two antibiotics which ultimately cleared up the infection and green mucus, however not the constant cough, chest and nasal congestion. The mucus is clear and sometimes loose and other times I will cough it up and it seems to be chunky. I use my albuterol inhaler often due to not being able to breathe with the cough and congestion, I constantly feel that my chest is tight. I have also taken 2 more antibiotics hoping it would clear up but it has not.
1271927 tn?1310583962 I can't eat today because it's making a sucktion tunnel and my ears are popping when I try to eat - oh, and because my nose is stuffy I can't breathe when I eat! I can hardly get any of the mucus out and when I do, it's only a tiny bit of clear stuff. Today it's so bad and I couldn't be more miserable with it. I've tried the saline spray and afrin. My nose is so stuffy that it all just runs right back out.
Avatar m tn Hello all, for about a month now I have had a cough with chest congestion, sometimes it's productive, sometimes it's not, and I cough up green and yellow sputum. I also have nasal congestion and when I blow my nose it's a lot green mucus. The symptoms actually seem to go away late night and return 2 hours or so after I wake up. I have had no fever and no other symptoms. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
1516809 tn?1345086364 Is a Hacking Cough with sounds of congestion in the upper chest typical of COPD? My mother for the last month would expel white colored globs of mucus periodically after a few minutes of coughing. She has no fever nor loss of appetite. Her geriatrician tried Azithromycin 500mg tabs for 5 days which seemed to help but then the coughing and globs returned. The doctor then doubled her Pulmicort doseage in her Nebulizer for two weeks to see if that helped plus using Robitussin as needed.
689528 tn?1364139441 My 2 1/2 month old has been really stuffed up the last few days and it's started to move to her chest. I took her to the docs yesterday and she was prescribed an antibiotic. I just started her on her first 2 doses yesterday. Anyway....when she's been pooping it is greenish instead of the normal mustard yellow. Could this be that she is sick and isn't getting to the fatty milk? Should I supplement with formula at all or no?
Avatar n tn I'd ask your doctor to send a mucus sample off to pathology to see if there is bacteria in it. I get blood in my mucus sometimes and I have a bacterial infection. Oh and I have post nasal drip too.
Avatar f tn I realize coughing up yellowish-green or green mucus is normal when you have bronchitis, but what about bright, lemon yellow colored mucus? What is it? What caused it? How do I get rid of it? Should I be worried? (Have had typical bronchitis symptoms for aprox. 3 weeks...cough, chest congestion, runny/congested nose, lots of phlem, lose of voice, raspy voice, deep chest cough, fever (first week), trouble sleeping because it feels like someone is sitting on my chest when I lay down...
Avatar n tn Every time I get viral bronchitis, it begins w/clear mucus & progresses to green specs in it then gradually on to all green then to green/brown. Maybe you have an infection that your body is fighting off & so far it's not bad. If you haven't had this problem before, go to & follow the instructions for home treatment.
Avatar m tn If the mucus feels like its coming from the base of your chest then it suggests that the infection is quiet low down your respiratory tract. If you have been feeling more tired or weak this would be the cause of it because you would be unable to transpport enough oxygen to the rest of your body causing fatigue. If you do have a respiratory infection and you chose not to be treated by a gp then you run the risk of pneumonia which would land you in the hospital eventually.
Avatar m tn Unlike the colds of the past, where the symptoms almost always would be a massive sore throat that would last for a couple of days, followed by nasal congestion, post nasal drip, yellow and green mucus drainage, and that incessant cough, this year has seen all the above along with chest congestion. It's hard to sleep at night, because the chest congestion builds up and I have to get up and cough my head off to get all the congestion out.
Avatar n tn if you can taste infection its mostlikely a sinus infection.. whitch will cause chest congestion.. whitch will make you cough and your teeth hurt and your ears hurt and give you headaches.. lol if you dont have thoese symptoms it could be pneumonia.. if the mucus is orange or green and you have not yet gone to the doctor i would go.. if its yellow or light green its viral and they cant do anything take advil and try and sleep..
Avatar f tn I told her I'd been sick a few weeks before with a lot of congestion, mostly in the throat that caused thick mucus when I coughed. My EKG and D-dimer came back normal, my cholesterol is normal (under 200), but I have high triglycerides. She told my my chest pain was most likely caused by being sick weeks before and to not worry too much about it. She said when she listened to my lungs I made a "wooooosh" instead of the normal, non-sick "woosh".
Avatar n tn I have polyps in my sinus which cause congestion and post nasal drip. I'm running to the bathroom frequently to cough up mucus from my throat. You could try using a neti pot and see if your symptoms will improve at all. Acid reflux is also capable of giving you a sore throat and cough.
Avatar f tn If so, is it normal for that mucus that comes up to be quite sticky and thick and SLIGHTLY green? I always read green=infection, but....I feel fine. And I only cough voluntarily to "get rid of stuff" that I know deep down IS in there. The "exhaling wheezing type mucus in chest noise" is getting better but still there. Am I just being impatient? I'm starting to freak out that I have lung cancer or something?! (p.s. 27 non smoker!
Avatar f tn I have been told I can take more, but I have not cleared that with my doctors yet. 3) Sinus rinses can help reduce drainage and therefore chest congestion. You should talk to your doctor about the headaches. They sound like migraines or cluster head aches. Cluster headaches might be more likely. The research I have done on them (I have been experiencing terrible headaches recently as well) says that they are sudden with very severe pain headaches. They can come in clusters (off and on).
Avatar m tn was eating pumpkin seeds that apparently aggravate them. the same thick mucus from all three 'orifices'. easily visible ' worms' of green/brownish color. i have every animal listed as carriers so it makes sense in my case. can SEE them in the mucus!
Avatar f tn I wouldn't have thought the the low thyroid would cause chest pains. This is likely be to be congestion, asthma, muscle problems. What did your doctor reckon it was?
Avatar f tn I have woken recently on a number of occasions feeling I am suffocating and someone is pushing on my chest. I have a sticky white mucus that is constantly in the back of my throat but does not block my nose. I have dry eyes and a dry mouth and drinking does not help clear it, only a loud long snort slightly dislodges it. When I clean my teeth I retch as I cannot swallow. I have tried beconaise and sudafed as well as other nasal sprays, nothing works.
Avatar n tn I also have a little chest congestion that seems to make me cough in the evening hours. My teeth actually hurt worse than anything right now! I don't even want to eat and I can't have hot drinks because I also have rosacea. I am a mother of two toddlers and attend online classes for my school. I am so busy all the time and can't concentrate as well as I used to. I just took some Ibruprofen, about 800 mgs..does anyone know of any other solutions at this point?
574129 tn?1231461402 The worst thing of all, because you can’t really pin point that you have Sinus and that your Mucus is NOT Green or Yellow all the TIME, the Doctor won’t take you seriously… SECIONT I: (SKIP TO SECTION II IF IN HURRY) But first : To Goober_Dork Yep totally feel your frustration, umm, yeah probably a good idea to skip milk,,, the only reason the Doc's changed there mind about Milk and Mucus 7 years ago was that it was effecting the Dairy industry,, that is if you want to believe that, no one
Avatar n tn Chest congestion, sinus congestion with green mucus, sore throat, headache and i feel terrible. Is there anything i can take to relieve my symptoms or am i stuck suffering? I forgot to mention this started 2 weeks ago and has gotten progressively worse.
Avatar n tn If you are coughing up yellow or green mucus, you probably have bronchitis. I hope you are feeling better by now. Sometimes waiting it out can work and/or using OTC remedies like saline for your sinuses can do wonders. If you aren't feeling better and still have the yellowish stuff --- I would see a physician.
Avatar m tn Symptoms of my cold were runny nose, cough and congestion. Every morning I would spit out green phlegm and afterwards it would be clear. So on 03/16 everything cleared out, no longer had any cold symptoms; although I was left with a cough, somewhat tight chest and short breath. There's no mucus, it's a dry cough and any mucus I spit out or blow out is clear. Is it acute bronchitis or should I visit the doctor?
Avatar m tn Hello all, for about a month now I have had a cough with chest congestion, sometimes it's productive, sometimes it's not, and I cough up green and yellow sputum. I also have nasal congestion and when I blog my nose it's green mucus. The symptoms actually seem to go away late night and return a while after I wake up. I have had no fever and no other symptoms. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hot bowl of water with vick or olbas oil and breathe the vapours with your head covered with a towel - take care of the hot water. This will help any congestion. If you start to bring up green mucus with your cough or your chest hurts, go to the doctor as sometimes you can get a bacterial infection. Antibiotics will not help a virus, but they will help if you have a bacterial infection. I am on the tail end of mine and I have a persistent cough easing off now - it is now 4 weeks.
