Coughing out smoke

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing out smoke


Avatar n tn Syncope is the medical term for "passing out" and fainting or passing out with harsh coughing is not uncommon, whatever the cause of the cough. The cough may be due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but you should not assume that. If you smoke cigarettes or marijuana, that could be the cause. But, you should check out the cough with your doctor on this and, at least, have a chest x-ray. Most chronic coughs can at least be controlled, if not totally eliminated.

Avatar n tn Well you need to understand what smoke is and how we smell it. Smoke is a suspension of particles in a gas. These particles are irritants to people with asthma. Not the same but kinda like people with allergies when they come in contact pollens. The body reacts to the pollen making their nose run or something. With asthma these particles on contact can cause swelling for an asthmatic similar to the way a person with allergies react to pollen.

Avatar m tn Something tasted weird when I coughed so I spit it out in the sink and it was bright red blood. I drank a bunch of water and then didn't have to cough anymore. I am really scared I don't know what this means. If its relevant, I smoke weed around 3 times a week and I had smoked the night that I coughed. I also had a few beers that night. Not sure if this is relevant. I also use a juul(e-cig). Im a little overweight but not too much at all.

Avatar m tn Try to avoid the nasal irritants such as cigarette smoke, perfume, aerosol sprays, smoke, smog and car exhaust. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.

Avatar m tn If I was close with my other I would tell her, problem is she lives in another country and I never see her. You should tell your mother that you don't smoke, maybe even tell her why you think this happens.
Avatar m tn I'd take cough medicine from time to time to ease out the coughing. Also I'd go see a pulmonary specialist. I'd also avoid smoking or places filled with smoke.
Avatar m tn When I woke up this morning, I suddenly got the feeling like there is some liquid built up in my chest (the feeling is right on the top of the chest, where the neck begins). As I am very wary of coughing (I sometimes have a cough that I can't stop and it makes me short of breath, so I avoid it) I didn't try to see if I can expel whatever it is. I wonder could this be an allergy, or could it be something else? I googled my symptom but I found nothing.
250701 tn?1320974765 Still coughing my head off. I just don't know about this cough, It has just been lingering and lingering throughout the treatment. It really worries me. Gotta go to the lung Dr. this Thur. I know she is going to say stop smoking. I try and just can't right now. God Bless us all.
2132780 tn?1335728372 He was off work because the week before, he had wrecked a semi-tractor trailer, because of these same type of coughing fits. At breakfast he began to cough for a total of 30-45 seconds. He passed out & fell into the floor. He's been seeing a respiratory doctor also. He has also been tested for allergens, as well as saw a neurologist. Their diagnosis was some type of allergen, or a respiratory infection. He was given steiroids (Prednisone) & an inhaler, & antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am 41 year old female with a 25 year history of smoking. (I smoke about 8-10 a day).Yesterday I did a huge cough and spat the resulting phlegm in the sink. It had blood in it. Not a large amount about 5p/dime size. The actual phlegm was clearish with a green/grey tinge. The blood was bright red. Needles to say, after reading everything online I am now scared witless! I am going to speak to my GP tomorrow. It has not happened since.
20293666 tn?1494392823 I have also been having difficultly taking in a deep breath and feel out of breath if I walk up steps. Other than the coughing and shortness of breath I have no other symptoms. No sore throat and I have never coughed up any mucus or blood. Some history: I am 48 years of age. I was always around second hand smoke as a child. As a teen I was a smoker and smoked for about 10 years less than a half a pack a day. I haven’t smoked in over 20 years.
Avatar f tn I need to know if this is normal, maybe just my body's way of clearing everything out. I quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant four months ago. I'll still occasionally have a puff or two but that's few and far in between. Since about the second or third week post quitting I started coughing up this weird white/gray phlegm that has a terrible, bitter acrid taste that coats my mouth and back of my throat almost like an oil. Similar to bronchitis sputum but not green or yellow.
Avatar n tn You might be exposed to smoke without being aware of it. Smoke can enter a room from under a door or a crack in the window frame or through a central ventilation heating and cooling system. This could be a cause of your cough. On the other hand, given your previous experience with odd smells, this could be another of those. The cough with "bad chest pain" could be causing one or more of the nerves coming off your spine, being compressed by the high pressures generated with a cough.
Avatar m tn Look at michael phelps olympic swimmer how can he smoke a bowl of weed and still be the best???? I know lol. Try it out if you can or are sure you wont collapse a lung.
Avatar f tn Within 10-15 minutes after I wake up in the morning, I get a coughing fit that lasts 3-5 minutes, to the point that I am gagging. Once in a while during the day I may also get one of these fits. Any ideas as to the cause?
