Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm headache

coughing

Avatar f tn I started coughing Saturday, February sixth. Felt like typical coughing but it started getting bad on Monday, the eighth. Tuesday morning i started coughing up blood, looked clotted.. it was darker. Well, a week later, today i still am coughing up blood in the morning. It actually has had some bright, fresh, blood in it but it isn't in that big of quantities. It's the sixteenth and i've been wheezy since the eighth.
Avatar m tn After I get up, I start getting a headache in either my left or right temple area only. As the day goes on, I never hack up anymore phlegm, but I always am clearing my throat CONSTANTLY! Any advice? Thanks in advance!
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 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 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 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 m tn In last few years I frequently, especially in winter, had cold and nasal congestions. During last few weeks I regularly had headache along with cold. Two weeks ago I got cough as well, but not more than twice a day lasting more than 1.5 minutes a day. However, the cough was absent in last two weeks, though I had regular headache and intermittent nasal congestions. To my astonishment, two days ago suddenly I coughed fresh blood.
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 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 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 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 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.
Avatar m tn Hello, I am a 22 year old who gets a cold about once a year, and I find that I am good at putting a stop to my cold, having it last only a few days before the end of it comes about. However, my least favorite part of the recovery process is all the phlegm I am producing, which requires me to cough it up in the most nauseating way so frequently. I learned about Phlegm, what it does and why, as well as what certain drugs do, such as expectorants.
Avatar m tn I went to bed last night with a lot of phlegm in my throat and woke up this morning with a lot of soreness and phlegm once again. I tried to hack up the phlegm. Most of it was clear or yellow. Then I managed to get a real good one... I hacked up a real thick sample that was directly from my throat, and spit it out onto a tissue. I noticed a streak of blood on the tissue mixed with yellow phlegm. I continued to try to bring phlegm up, and didn’t notice the blood anymore.
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 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.
667049 tn?1225375152 Same as you, it started dry and then progressed to bringing up phlegm. The phlegm is yellowish-green. I went to see my doctor about 2 weeks ago. He gave me an anti-biotic for a sinus infection (which is what almost everyone I know is being diagnosed with). Needless to say, I have finished my 10 day track of anti-biotics and I am still coughing! Guess that wasn't the right diagnosis. Anyways, just watch out for Pneumonia.
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 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!...
Avatar f tn Anyway, rust colored phlegm could be the result of old blood down in the lungs if you are coughing it up. Typically it is nothing to worry about but once in a blue moon it could be tuberculosis which requires medical attention. Doubtful that you have TB but you could check with your doctor to be on the safe side. For phlegm and mucous, it helps to double your intake of liquid to keep it loose and flowing. Try not to use a cough suppressent as it is better to have it moving.
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 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 The phlegm that I have been coughing up and post-nasal discharge tastes quite salty. I have been producing this saline stuff for about six months and wonder if my doctor needs to know about it?
