Coughing phlegm breath

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm breath


Avatar n tn chest tightness when I take a deep breath, coughing up thick clear phlegm (sometime a bit yellowish in the morning). Went to the doctor and diagnosed as allergies. He gave me antibiotics and allergy drugs. Result: it didnt help at all. It has been 4 months now I have this problem and very stressful. Last resort: call up my mom because she always believe in traditional chinese herbs. Told me to take RAW garlics every day. It is day 2 now and it help me a lot. I hope this help.
Avatar n tn It takes a lot of coughing but usually I can get some phlegm to dislodge. My concern is that I don't seem to have any concerns with shortness of breath. When I go to the doctors my oxygen is always in the 98% range. Yet I always seem to have a crud in the middle of my chest... and worsens, say maybe 1-2 times per year. I have tried to take up running. The most is 3 miles.. so nothing big.
Avatar n tn I have a5 month old baby boy, for the past 3 days he has had a bad cough and keeps coughing up phlegm trouble is he keeps swallowing it. He has had me up every night and it sounds like a barking cough and he gets so upset. Tried nose drops, menthol rub on his chest, calpol,. The doctor said his chest was clear and it was all up top but really worried still as he is so upset by all this.
Avatar f tn However, if the cough is severe and very forceful, there's a slight risk of pulling or loosening stitches that have been used during the surgery, which may or may not be a problem. Also, if you are coughing up colored phlegm (yellow, brown, green, etc) then you most definitely need to be seen by your doctor - it could mean an infection. I've also had a hysterectomy several years ago and I know how painful it can be to cough after an abdominal surgery.
Avatar f tn Since we are talking about coughing. I had a few questions of my own. I have had issues coughing for the past 4-5 years. I caught constantly. Sometimes it makes my headache worse but sometimes I don't have a headache so it doesn't bother me. I do have sinus disease as per my MRI. So that explains the post nasal drip. I always have problems coughing whenever I am near or around water. For example I cough so much in the shower that sometimes it will make me throw up or gag.
Avatar n tn The Dr just diagnosed my 6 yr old son with RAD. He has had a bad cough,coughing up blood, and coughing so hard that he vomits. Is this commin with RAD, and what can I do in my house to make this better?
Avatar n tn Shortly after this accident, he also had a slight cold, during which he first experienced phlegm accumulation. He was given medication and the cold cleared up in a few days. However, everyday he continues to feel excessive phlegm build up in his chest and has to clear his throat constantly throughout the day. The phlegm is thick but not unusually discolored. The phlegm is not affected by eating habits nor exercise.
Avatar m tn I'm 18 yrs old and yesterday I had a cough attack from choking on food and I went to my bathroom and started coughing up phlegm really hard but on two occasions I coughed up phlegm that had a streak of blood in it.
Avatar n tn I have been having a rusty or blood associated phlegm (sputum) for about 8 months. I don't cough at all. Such phlegm easily comes out after I wake up from sleeping. At other times, I have to summon (pull out phlegm) repeatedly and the blood assocoated or the rusty would show up in the fourth or fifth call. I have burning pain on my ribs to the right and left of what is called "infrasternal notch" (where gastritis pain is usually felt).
Avatar n tn I have to blow in his face before he will take a breath. My doctor has listened to his lungs and chest over and over agagin and they are clear. We have has x rays done and nothing has shown up. He sounds like a cat when he breathes. it rattles in his throat. It seems to me that he has flem or somthing stuck in his throat all the time. We have tried steroids and multiple medications and nothing has worked. he cant slppe through the night and he makes me feel so bad.
Avatar f tn I feel like my cough is coming from either my throat or deep in my chest cavity. I can breath fine when I'm not having a coughing fit, never smoked, normal appetite, no pressure or pain in chest, and no sore throat present at the time. If you have any ideas or insight on what may be going on, comments would be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn did you cough up thick mucus or thinner mucus resembling saliva? or was it saliva that you've actually coughed up? any phlegm you feel like coughing/stuck in chest, when you lie down after a while? cough/phlegm worse in the morning?
Avatar n tn It is so severe that it leads to vomiting and panic level shortness of breath. It is prohibiting any restful sleep and keeps her awake for hours afterword causing fatigue throught the day. There is some phlegm with the cough. She is 42, a smoker, is allergic to cats and dogs although we have had a 4 lb yorkie for 4.5 years with only mild and occasional reaction in my wife. We recently (6 months) ago added a Parrot to the household.
Avatar f tn I haven't really had to cough, but I have had to clear my throat sometimes. It also feels like I have's not coughing it up, but get up somehow phlegm. I don't know how to describe how that happens lol. Tonight, I noticed that there are little blood flecks in it. I doubt that it's anything too terribly serious, as it's not a lot [at least, as of now], but I'm wondering if it's something to be concerned about and monitor?
Avatar n tn My lungs are pretty bad i guess. I can't laugh without having a coughing fit and can't remember that being different. I have constant aches and pains in my chest and shortness of breath. For about the last month whenever phlegm comes up there is blood in it. It ranges from quite a bit to just streaks. I know this sounds silly but i have a phobia of going to the doctors. I've convinced myself if i go she's just going to tell me i have lung cancer and i would rather not know that!!

Avatar n tn I tried running one lap of the track and shortly there after I started coughing. Throughout that night and that next day I was coughing up yellow phlegm. I'm not sure what this means, but I really don't want to go to the doctors and waste my money. They'll just give me some nose spray, inhalers and send me on my way. If anyone can help please feel free to email me at tes_scott***@**** Thank you. Good Luck Everyone!
Avatar m tn Does not occur while working, Feels like a chokepoint, makes me constantly cough and try to remove phlegm with difficulty often leading to partialregurgitation of previous meal, followed by dry mouth. I've had nasal drip and sinus issues since childhood, I am 24 now and cannot go 10 minutes without coughing and spitting. Too embarrassed to date, No bad breath as I have seen in other posts, I don't think it's psychological given my past struggles with this issue.
192055 tn?1263559137 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.
Avatar n tn Sadly - we all seem to have the same nerve-wracking symptoms. I read the ones who had the "lung discharge" which is CONSTANT phlegm, snoring, bad breath, windpipe-whistle/wheezing. First stage COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Doctors asked me for YEARS, 'do you smoke?" each year was another year to claim freedom. 30 years smoke-free and this is the deal I get? Well, things could be worse.
Avatar n tn The muscle pain went away and came back. Now the thick clear phlegm has a horrible taste. I'm not really coughing so I'm not sure if it's coming from sinuses or down in my throat or bronchials. Sometimes it had flecks of light brown in it. Any idea what all this could be?
Avatar f tn Now if you reverse this, that is, tighten the throat and breath in continuously for abour 8 to 12 seconds, then hold your breath for 4 seconds with the chin down, then chin up, close right nostril and slowly breath out through left nostril, you have just done Ujjayi pranayam.You will feel like coughing initially. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Avatar n tn Every single day, from when I wake up to the time I go to bed (if I can get sleep), I am constantly coughing or clearing my throat. The phlegm is usually white, sometimes with a bit of yellow. It is almost always extremely thick and a large amount. Sometimes in the afternoon or night, the phlegm is stringy and chokes me. There are some days that I cough up phlegm about every 5 minutes.
Avatar n tn He told me not to worry about the blood, just irritated the lining from coughing a lot. It's been three days since I've started the antibiotic (amoxi-clav), my cough is still present (going on a little over a week), although it does seem to be lessening somewhat. It is the worst in the morning, and all the times I've noticed the blood it has been in the morning. I still have the brownish phlegm (mostly streaks/spots of it, surronded by clear/white mucus, it looks like **** from smoking).
Avatar m tn he sometimes gets upper resiratory infections and has a very unproductive cough and cant clear the mucous or phlegm. are there any exercises that could increase his breath support or strength to make the cough more productive?
1003742 tn?1250207066 However, since the past two years, I haven't played soccer and i stopped going to the gym, i lost a lot of weight, and have a very, very lazy lifestyle. Now, unfortunately, i run out of breath by just climbing two flights of stairs. Just last weekend, i developped an annoying wet cough. As a smoker, i am used to smokers cough. However, for the past four days i have had this cough with dark bulky phlegm throughout most of the day. I got worried when i saw a drop of blood in my mucus.
