Avatar f tn I tried taking robitussin dm because thats what my doctor recommended me to take,but its just not helping..have any of you ladies tried a home remedy that worked? I cant sleep and my stomach hurts from all my coughing.
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 f tn So, I'm hispanic, and my grandmother is mexican, so here is a home remedy....boil some cinnamon sticks, when it starts steaming up, place a towel over your head and slowly breath in the steam, a few times through your nose, then a few times through your mouth, do this for about 2 to 3 min. When done, pour the liquid in a cup and enjoy the tea, you can add honey or lemon, don't add sugar. It has worked for me in the past and do it with my first born and my husband.

Avatar f tn Last week I had an irritation at the back of my throat that made me cough and spit green and brown phlegm. This alarmed me and so I went to my loca doctor. The doctor prescribed me medicine for allergy and an antibiotic by the name of augmentin. She said that I should take a course of a week and see if I improve and if not I should go back to her for some further tests. Now I have seen an improvement in my health I.e.
Avatar n tn I too have an excess of mucus all the time. I'm always coughing up phlem and it seems it's all year even when I'm not sick. My mom doesn't think there is anything wrong with it, but I think I sould have it checked upt. It's more of a nuisance than anything, especially when exercising and worsens after I drink dairy products. If you've learned anything do you think you can fill me in too?
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 In currently 28 weeks along a have the worst cold. The coughing is really bad and was prescribed tessalon perles aka benzonate. Have any of you taken these? Could there be a natural remedy instead.
Avatar m tn I have chronic coughing up wads of green phlegm dozens of times a day, wake up with swollen sinus, almost black out with coughing fits, had this for 10+ years, probably no cough when sleeping, cough with shortness of breath, have not taken a deep breath in years with out cough and feels as if I just breathed in vinegar vapors, Sometimes it feels like upper lung soreness, most of the time it feels like throat, other times sinus.
Avatar n tn Also ive been coughing up a lot of phlegm since i moved out especially at night is this too a lingering side effect.
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.
1232362 tn?1333135406 Please know that coughing (unles it's a hairball) or panting is NOT ok in your cat. We had an upper resp, virus go through our house and 2 cats were fine. The 3rd I thought had mucus in his throat or trouble breathing due to stuffy nose like the rest and didn't realise his distress till he coughed up a frightening gob of green phlegm. Bob spent last night @ the vet w/pneumonia. happily (so far-say prayers for my boy) all signs looking good for him and he's coming home tonight.
Avatar n tn If you are coughing up yellow phlegm you have developed a drug resistant infection and need to go back to your physician immediately.
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 Hi Bridgette Your answer to another question was the best I've seen to this where to ride it out as on the mend Meaning I just got over a flu, and now at night if I exhale slowly while laying down, I get a crackling, popping noise. If I exhale all the way it is quit loud if I open my mouth. I will then force a deep cough and phlamn(sp?) will come out, not deep green or yellow now. Had that during the flu but now just it is annoying at night.
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 f tn In January 2008 is when I noticed I was coughing a lot. It keeps me up at night and I have thick white sometimes yellow phlegm that I cough up daily. It is very hard to cough up and I cough extremely harsh. It seems like it is all upper respitory to me. In April 2008, I had my first mini sinus surgery which did not help any of my symptoms. They did find MRSA in the sinuses.
Avatar f tn d get so severe that I just keep coughing until there is phlegm that comes out but it is clear. Its been so bad lately that my stomach and chest are hurting, sore, and I'm afraid that I may cough in my sleep. The longest I could probably go w/ having to cough severely would be 30 minutes to an hour. I will be scheduling a doctor, this time a new doctor, to see what is wrong. It was honestly never so bad until now.
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.
