Avatar n tn t feel better until after she coughs up all of her thick, clear phlegm. She had her left lower lobe removed seven weeks ago. She has COPD (mild) prior to surgery. She had the same problem with the excess phlegm before surgery, but it didn't make her sick. She takes atrovent, pro air and spiriva. She also takes carafate for the nausea. Do you have any other suggestions how to treat the nausea. Can you think of what may be causing the nausea other than the phlegm?
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 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 n tn m asthmatic and have never smoked. Over the past six weeks I have been coughing up grey phlegm with black specks in it. I went to see my gp who sent me for an X ray and was clear.
Avatar m tn Just came from a doctor, he said that he believes that it is caused by allergies. But up till now it still persist. I have mild clogged nose right now and phlegm. I have a hard time coughing it because it's not that much phlegm. Does this happen? I mean it's almost a month that this thing lasted. No fever, mild sore throat which was gone after a few days of antibiotics and now that persist is mild clogged nose and phlegm.
Avatar m tn also when i do cough i still taste a little of that metallic flavor that the phlegm had several weeks ago. any suggestions would be appreciated.
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...
Avatar f tn I'm a ftm and I just started to feel feverish. I have a 100.1° temperature, and a tickle in the back of my throat (with phlegm) which is making me cough. I'm terrified of coughing because a) it hurts (round ligament) and b) I'm afraid to pee a little from the coughing. Any advice to lower this fever and calm the cough in the 3rd trimester? Thanks!
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 n tn have had chest infection for 5 weeks and coughing up phlegm for at least 2 hours every day..i have taken 2 lots of antibiotics and now on other medication...
Avatar n tn I have terrible chest/nasal congestion for 4 days now. First two days I was coughing up loads of phlegm, yesterday and today my nose has become completely plugged but little phlegm is coming up, just a harsh weesey cough that I can not stop. The coughing is causing pain to my ribs. I am 24 weeks pregnant, have only had my temperature go up 1 degree. Should I go see a doctor? I am with a midwife so she can not help with other medical issues outside of pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Hello all! I'm sure that this topic has come up before, but I can't find the post. I'm now 15w2d and have been coughing like crazy for the last week or so. It's so bad to the point where I'm occasionally gagging. I called the doctor today and she said all I can do is have tea with honey or some lozenges. Cough syrups have way too much alcohol in them. Has anyone else had success with anything "safe" for us?
Avatar f tn I got sick about 3 weeks ago i was coughing real bad i felt like i had mucus in my chest but couldnt get them out i decided to just not take medicine i only took lemon with honey i guess the mucus cleared up on its own because i could never spit them out it lasted about a week and 1/2 the only thing that happened was i pulled a muscle coughing but nothing super bad..
Avatar m tn Ok i am a 29 year old male i used to smoke marijuana in cigar paper everyday but stopped several days ago before I became sick for several days coughing, body aches the chills head and sinus pains wheezing and no appetite while most of those symptoms stopped after several days the coughing and wheezing has stayed what concerns me is that I am wheezing still and sometimes coughing up a clearer phlegm (the phlegm 3days prior was dark green to yellow but is now more clear yellowish) with slight tra
Avatar f tn I have been sick off and on, more like on and on, for three and a half weeks. Many things going on so Ill start from the beginning. I orginally went to the Dr for dry cough and laryngitis. Was told I had bronchitis and was given antibiotics (bactrim). A week and a half later, I felt somewhat better. Suddenly two days later, I didnt go to the dr this time, I had sinus drainage hard core.

Avatar f tn I don’t have any other symptoms, no coughing or fever. Aside from the constant phlegm, I’m completely healthy. No smoking or drugs of any kind. Rarely drink alcohol. No one around me smokes. It’s been a constant thing everyday for 4 years.
4905918 tn?1375147193 So im 8 weeks as of today and somehow i caught a cold. I have been coughing ad sneezing A LOT, occasionally with some phlegm. i was wondering, could this hurt my baby at all???
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 m tn At first nothing was coming up But I have been coughing up A LOT OF THICK WHITE PHLEGM for the past month. I was wondering was this thick white phlegm a sign of hiv? I am not sure if this matters but in the first month i was dizzy. but the room was spinning but then it went away on it own. that is when all the coughing started. Then started producing a lot of thick, white phlegm in the back of my throat. The white white phlegm has not went away yet. It is very thick!
Avatar n tn I have a cold, am not a smoker but am coughing up blood in my phlegm.
994239 tn?1321203620 Or can it just be that the pneumonia is only causing inflammation with no phlegm? I have been sick for 2 + weeks, and started antibiotics about a week after the onset of the chest pain, when I spiked 103 fever and chills, rapid heart rate.
Avatar m tn I had a high fever, and muscle soreness. Then I started getting congested, so I went to the doctor. They checked for the flu, and took a chest x-ray. They said both looked fine. They put me on antibiotics because my phlegm was discolored. My fever left, and muscle ache's. Now I've been coughing up phlegm. Its been a week since I've been on antibiotics, and a week and a half I've been sick. My congestion is not getting better.
Avatar m tn When the cold produces phlegm, it can be harder for the lungs to process and expel, resulting in shortness of breath and tightness. There aren’t many herbal supplements that are designed for lungs, but taking an amino acid called N-acetylcysteine provides good lung support and detoxification. Also he can at least start taking an immune boosting supplement daily until he starts to feel better. Have him drink plenty of hot fluids – reduced sodium broth, tea, and hot water with lemon and honey.
