Coughing phlegm after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm after eating


Avatar f tn After every time I eat anything I begin coughing until I get the phlegm out of my throat. It is always clear, but it is quite thick. This has been going on for 4 to 5 years, but it didn't used to be so bad. It used to happen only after I ate spicy food or food that was really hot. Now it happens after everything that I eat. I do not seem to have any other symptoms. I do smoke about 1 pack every 2 weeks, so not that often, but i do.
Avatar n tn I also have the dripping nose and coughing up phlegm after lap band surgery. It is not an allergy--the nose dripping is gustatory rhinitis. I'm not sure if the coughing is related. It started for me less than a year after lap band surgery. I wish I knew if the coughing up phlegm is related. Apparently my sinuses make gastric fluid--could it be possible that my lungs also do? Couldn't that be harmful to my lungs?
Avatar f tn Hi Gary, I'd like to know, I've had the coughing up phlegm after eating for the last two years, I don't drink alcohol or smoke and no doctor can fix it either. They just give me drugs that affect other parts of my body so I won't take anything now. Do you have a natural remedy. I'd like to know as would many other sufferers out there.
Avatar m tn no fever but i was tired and the coughing was worse in the evening and in the morning i would get bad attacks and it was very hard to cough up the phlegm. The phlegm at the time was a thick grey/green mucous. I took some chinese herbs that helped me in the past and the cough finally went away after about 5 weeks. however i still have a residual cough at night and in the morning. not producing much phlegm now but when i do its lighter and easier to hack up.
Avatar n tn It seems to come in waves of coughing spells and then no coughs. I have been coughing up phlegm that is mostly white/clear with small amounts of a yellowish color and small brown flecks. When I lay down I can hear myself breathing/wheezing and makes it impossible to sleep, not to mention coughing fits making my partner unable to sleep. I have been taking antihistamines before bed and it seems to help calm my cough.
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 n tn I have had the same cough for several years. It's always after I eat. I've been to all kinds of doctors and have tried all kinds of medicines but the only thing that ever helped me was Prednisone. The problem is that it's a steroid and doctors don't like to give it because it has side effects, but I can take it for 7 days and then I'm good for a couple of months with absolutely no coughing. When it starts again I take it for another week.
Avatar m tn Sounds like you have an obstruction there, the coughing, eating, drinking and even after running your airways are being widened making it easier to breath. So definately see a doctor - make sure it is nothing to worry about because if it is an ostruction you don't want it to get bigger or cause other problems.
Avatar n tn All pet scans are clear and x-rays clear still I have a cough that sometimes is that of a heavy smoker. Coughing brings up clear mucus. Other than this cough I feel great. Any suggestions on how to take care of the cough?
Avatar f tn I have been coughing up phlegm daily for around 7 years. I've tried antibiotics several times without any success. I've had x-rays and mri scans but nothing showed up. Around 18 months ago my voice started to change. I was then prescribed omeprazole 20 mg capsules which make a slight difference and my voice returned to normal. But I still have to tap my chest and often have to get someone to hit my back to dislodge the phlegm which is milky white/ beige globules and quite a lot of it.
Avatar f tn In the past few weeks I have noticed that I cough causing phlegm to rise in my chest after I have eaten. It is every mealtime and nothing specific triggers it other than food. After a couple of coughs it's all clear again until my next meal. Can you please enlighten me as to what may be happening?
Avatar m tn sound like your lungs are clearing and you may have bronco or asthma or something see your doctor some times when you stop smokeing this happen.
Avatar f tn Because my dog interacts with other dogs a lot, when he developed a "cough" I immediately took him to the vet. He had no fever, is eating and drinking normally and his activity level is normal - he doesn't at all act like a sick dog. I have kept him away from other dogs to avoid getting them sick. The vet diagnosed him with kennel cough and put him on Doxycycline 100 mg - he takes 1 1/2 pills twice a day. He started them on Tuesday.He has also had a Bordetella vaccine.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that the phlegm is mucus from worms. When the worms were bad in my kids and I we were coughing up phlegm about 10 days a month. Thats part of how we found out about them. Its their cycle. The eggs are in it. That was just in our case. Im sure yours is different. Just wanted to put it out there that you may want to keep track of the days. We did have over 20 negative parasite tests before we brought in hard samples and was prescribed the meds.
Avatar m tn You should go to the doctor to be checked out because if you stpped cold turkey it can be something More serious then you might think
Avatar f tn I am at work and started coughing, I realized that I started to taste blood, and when I spit what I could into a paper towel after coughing some more, I discovered that the phlegm or spit was actually pink. I blew my nose and it doesn't appear to be bleeding, and I wasn't able to cough up much more after this. But being asthmatic I am worried as to whether or not this is common or is something more serious going on?
Avatar f tn Lived with a father who smoked, and he himself seemed to have the same problem. Coughing up phlegm, tons of mucus. My mother had to wash so many handkerchiefs. We lived on a farm back then, and now I live on a farm as well, and have a husband who also smokes. It seems after I finish eating I often have lots of clear mucus that needs to get out. I can feel like it all situated in my nasal cavity, plus it needs to leave my throat as well. It doesn't matter what I eat or drink.
Avatar m tn I am 50 yrs old I have never smoked but for the past two years I keep getting really bad chest infections the doctor put me on inhalers and said I suffered from asthma, every morning I cough up phlegm and my chest feels tight when I spit out the phlegm its brown in colur like its got blood in it after I rince my mouth this stops until the next morning.
Avatar n tn Hello. I've recently had a cold and lately I've noticed that every morning when I spit out some phlegm there are streaks of blood in it. When I started coughing, it wasn't there then but after a few days of coughing really heavily it started. It only happens in the mornings though after waking up. No blood comes up the rest of the day no matter how much I cough. It's been going on four about... I don't know, 2 to 4 days now.
Avatar f tn m recovering without having to take any medication, just water and rest.
Avatar m tn Okay so it started almost half a week ago I'd say.. I wasn't feeling sick at all, but for some reason I just started coughing up a lot of phlegm.. clearish to yellow colored. I don't smoke cigarettes, only on the occassional weekend. I do smoke pot. Anyways I thought the phelgm coughing up mighta been caused by some resin I was smoking, but they said that was black phlegm, not clearish yellow... So a few days pass of coughing up phlegm, and now I'm sitting here.. irritated...
581909 tn?1218031547 I also started using a sinus irrigation system (salt water). That has done wonders for me. I haven't had to spray my nose with Afrin (the only other thing I found to work at night and my dr said no no no). However, I noticed after I use the irrigation system, my left sinus cavity holds the water. I can blow my nose after I irrigate but it's not until 5 minutes later that I lay down or bend over that the water will drain. Again, only on the left side.
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago, I had this strange cold, one day running nose, one day coughing, one day heavy muscus then coughing fits sometimes initiated by particular foods and sometimes no eating or cold air and night coughing fits( not every night) were more harsh with lots of phlegm and stomache gas and spitting out. I saw a doctor and prescribed Averin along with 3 other medicines-Lansoprazole, Tulobuterol tape, Cetirizine but with no apparent effect. What to do now?
Avatar m tn Coughing up of dark brown phlegm could be due to smoking or inhalation of excessive amounts of dust, eating cocoa, chocolates etc. Chronic bronchitis results in infection and inflammation of the bronchi. This is often accompanied by brown phlegm. A more serious cause of brown phlegm is blood that arises from the bronchi, voice box, windpipe or lungs. Coughing up brown phlegm is also a common symptom of excessive smoking.
Avatar f tn it happened to me just now- as i was approaching orgasm, i felt like i was forming phlegm in my chest / trachea. after ejaculation, i coughed to expectorate what i expected to be phlegm but was shocked to see that it was bright red blood.This continued for maybe twelve coughings with blood being expectorated each time. i had not had coughs for at least 3 weeks prior to this. my blood pressure right after the incident was 181/110 .i am a diabetic butmy CBG at the time was 140 .
Avatar f tn Do you mean that if i do not have any phlegm after taking bromhexine, then there will be no more problem with the blood in phlegm? so , do i need to consult a doctor? A good news to tell, today the phlegm i spit out without coughing have no blood with it, except once. =) I did not sleep in air-con room de as i saw some of the post here said that if the air is too dry, that may cause blood vessels in nasal breaks. Thanx for ur advice and opinion. Ur opinion really console me a lot. Thank you!
