Avatar f tn I have been coughing up black mucus for about 1 year or so now. I smoke cigarettes and I have had a puncutered lung about 20 years ago. Heart disease, and chronic bronchitis are on my mothers side of the family. and my mother has emphezema. I breath fine and feel fine. If I stop smoking will this clear up?
Avatar f tn However, when people exercise, they tend to breathe air through their mouth more than through their nose, which can cause dry, cool, and particle-filled air to go directly to the lungs, which can cause respiratory irritation that leads to coughing. Coughing is the body’s natural response to clear the airway of unwanted debris, including mucus build-up. However, coughing and mucus buildup from respiratory irritations usually discontinue shortly after exercise.
Avatar f tn Is it possible that asthma sytmptoms of coughing, and tighteness in chest and mucus can be caused by advanced invasion of roundworms in the lungs? I have had very unproductive coughing and some times I get a clump of rather dry mucus that tooks like spagetti or worms. I also have fatigue and a feeling of fullness all of the time.

Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been coughing up clear jelly like Mucus Balls. I have been a smoker for 8 years, and I have Asthma. I wake up in the morning and in the middle of the night coughing up a lot of the little mucus balls. It happens a little bit through out the day. Sometimes they are balls and sometimes they are like a hair, but made of mucus. I am very scared and do not have health insurance. I am 25, and thought I was pretty healthy. Please someone, HELP!
Avatar n tn for about 2months now I have had a cough, lots of mucus, wheezing, when I cough now i pee on myself which is embarrasing.
Avatar n tn If silent reflux is your problem, propping your be can really keep the refluxing acid from getting into your lungs at night. This could be an easy thing to try to see if it helps stop the coughing and mucus during the day.
Avatar m tn Is there any effect on ingesting or swallowing the phlegm or mucus from coughing as opposed to spitting it out?
Avatar f tn What started as a sore throat has affected my lungs, difficulty breathing,(mainly exhaling)(raspy sound in throat when exhaling) coughing up rust, white and yellow mucus. I start to feel better, and then bam it gets worse. now it feels like there is gross mucus trapped in my lungs, & i dont know how to get it out. Sometimes after i cough, the phlegm is so bad it makes me sick to my stomach. I dont want to go to Dr. to be told its just a virus.
Avatar m tn This started like a head cold and still behaves like it with lots of mucus from my sinuses, balance problems and ear pressure. Some mucus comes up when I cough but not as much as there was for the first couple of days. Its yellow/brown colour and thick. I get very puffy even walking a short distance and start coughing. I have been on two kinds of anti biotics and chest Xray shows a buildup of gunk in the bottom of both lungs.
Avatar f tn I have coughed, it seems for most of my life. Two years ago I was diagnosed with Pilmonary Fibrosis (of unknown origin) I don't and never have smoked. The fibrosis is small but in both lungs. My life is just beginning to improve with the help of steroids and inhalers etc, But the cough persists. A lot of mucus, which is clear but cloggy and even stops me talking sometimes. It has been been identified as a fungusidal, so now I take something to get rid of the fungus.
Avatar m tn My symptoms started a month ago when i had a fever, throat pain, coughing up yellow mucus and a runny nose, so i decided to visit my doctor which prescribed Klacid 500 mg (Clarithromycin), which i took and after a few days the runny nose stopped and my throat no longer hurt, however, i was still caughing, which a follow-up to my doctor gave me Valdocef (Cefadroxil) which i also took but the cough remained.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your quick response. I know it's not bacterial because I'm not coughing up a lot d green mucus or have that drowning feeling in my lungs. I think it's just my Annual Bronchitis kicking in it has always started during late fall early winter. But I am going to be setting a doctor appointment so I can get more of those Tessalon pearls.
Avatar f tn Silent reflux is well known for also causing issues with excess mucus production and not just in the esophagus but also in the lungs and sinuses. Here's information on silent reflux: The phlegm is pretty typical and that it is green means you should watch out for infections of the lungs or sinuses. You may need a round of antibiotics?
16898319 tn?1452220901 I have asthma and get a burning in my lungs from coughing a lot. I would just leave it for a few more days, unless you get worse or start coughing up grey mucus or hear a cracking noise when you breath (those are signs of pneumonia).
Avatar f tn I can deal with the wheezing, but 3 times now over the past 2 months I’ve started coughing hard and pulled up a thick, brown worm/slug like hard mucus that’s about 1.5 inches long and fairly thick. Directly after, I end up coughing up a small amount of orangish “regular” mucus. Otherwise, I haven’t coughed anything else up at all. Anyone know what this is? I can’t find anything online.
Avatar m tn coughing phlegm from lungs for the past six months, have taken antibiotics with no results, did take predrisone together with SPIRIVA 18 mcg and ADVAIR 500/50 for the past month. Still coughing up phlegm and have limited lung capacity. Any suggestions comments.
Avatar m tn And now I am feeling congested,I am coughing clear mucus. Could this be fluid or mucus on my lungs? And is this normal?
Avatar f tn This thins mucus. If the mucus is from your lungs it will thin that too. B5 also reduces inflammation. Neither treatment will do any harm and they may help identify the problem. You might also want to take 500 mg of vitamin C to reduce inflammation.
Avatar m tn As in your muscles are too weak to realy clear your lungs so you keep having this mucus in your lungs that you can clear up. I would talk to your doctor to see if this is the case, and then maybe a solution could be found.
Avatar n tn Is it in your lungs or sinuses? Has your doctor done a chest or sinus x-ray? If your illness is viral, no antibiotics will work. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar n tn Most doctors today will not even prescribe cough suppressants anymore because it hinders healing. The lungs are trying to heal by coughing your ridding the lungs of unwanted toxins and such. Are you coughing up any mucus and is it clear or yellowish green in color? I would call your doctor if it is not clear because you may need antibiotics. I would also stop the cough medication so the lungs can rid themselves of any mucus that's causing infection.
Avatar f tn I have late onset asthma dx'd at age 57 now 62. I also developed severe sinusitis with copius amounts of mucus around the same time frame. I'm assuming it's all related since I never suffered with sinus issues previously. I also have Lupus. Recently I started a pred burst with 60 mg x 5 d to 40mg on down. I'm currently on the 5th day and it isn't slowing down the mucus production well. Before when my Dr.

The problem is now new doctor seems to think it is a sensory issue due to him having autism.

Avatar m tn I read in Prevention magazine that coughing can be controlled by eating dark chocolate. I bought a bar of it and broke off a square and ate it every time I felt like coughing after eating. It cleared up after a week of doing this.
Avatar n tn Now, my head is always hurting from the coughing, Im coughing up mucus constantly. My Lungs hurt so very badly. It is the worst of all.

Its scary. Im short of breath all the time. I get winded having normal conversations with people Im 23, I dont smoke, Im over weight but not amazingly so.
