Avatar f tn 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. I no longer have a family doctor and lost my job over three months ago now.. Should i go to emergency?? Doctor dropped me cause i took longer than a year to get a check up and NO ONE is taking new uninsured patients.

Avatar n tn I am a non-smoker, I have been coughing for the las month or so, this morning in the shower I started to spit black phlegm. Now I know this is not "normal". My father died from lung cancer at age 61, he was a smoker. I am using "Flovent" in the morning and "Ventolin" as needed. Any idea if that would stop by itself or should I see a doctor for stronger stuff? Thanks.
Avatar n tn the phlegm im coughing up in the morning is the normality of phlegm coughed up by a normal smoker.
Avatar n tn I have a cold, am not a smoker but am coughing up blood in my phlegm.
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 m tn This time the soreness persisted the whole entire day. 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.
Avatar f tn but the second day, i had blood stained phlegm in the morning and all the days whenever i spit the phlegm ( without coughing it out) may i asked wat is my problem? My mum just said that wait a few more days n see whether the phlegm goes off...oh ya, i slept in an air-con room, is this a factor causing me having blood in phlegm untill now?? By the way, i am just 17 year old..=( emm...may i know wat is ur opinion? Thank you. Your feedback is greatly appreaciated.
Avatar n tn I am 15 years old and have a cold, I caught the cold of my brother and now I am worried because my symptoms differ greatly from his. I have a very sore throat, I wake up in the morning feeling very dizzy and i am coughing up very dark, thick green phlegm is this normal?
Avatar m tn Hi there I would go to gp blood in saliva could be due to chest infection,coughing too much thus bursting tiny vessels in throat(not serious) if you have severe gastric disorder it could be coming from gastric is the blood bright red? If so this is prob due to strain from coughing,is the blood brown in colour if so this is old blood and should be checked out ASAP are you on medications that could be making gums bleed thus leaving slight blood in your salvia.
Avatar n tn The normal lining of the lung clears phlegm by lifting it up and delivering it down the esophagus (you can think of this as the food pipe). The normal situation then is that, phlegm is swallowed in small, regulated amounts that it is entirely automatic (there is no need to push it down voluntarily in the manner of swallowing a lump of food). Smoking destroys the lining, and hence to clear phlegm – the lungs must cough it out. Hence, the cough may be persistent.
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 f tn Then friday morning i woke up with pretty bad build of phlegm in my throat and i had some pain in my throat. Keep in mind this was about 3 in the morning and i couldnt sleep because my throat was hurting and it was itchy as well and i had to get up and spit like every 10 mins. So that night i went to medicine cabinet and took the last of some otc cough medicine that i had and then i was fine and was able to sleep.
Avatar f tn I have suffered from excess mucus which lodges in my throat for about 3+ years now. It causes me fatigue, and it interferes with daily life, e.g. coughing up mucus all day into sink, tissues, etc. It has not let up, except for about 2 days. I have gone to approximately six doctors and no one has determined the cause nor does anyone have any ideas. I have had a car load of tests run, e.g.
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 Hi, I went to a walk in clinic on Friday, I had a cold for about 5 days that seemed to be getting worse, sinus pressure, post nasal drip, cough and phlegm that produced green phlegm so he said it was sinusitis, gave me nasonex and Azithromycin. 6 pills, two at first dose and one a day, started on Saturday, it's now Tuesday, cough is minimal, still coughing up phlegm about once an hour, blowing nose is clear, chest congestion is mildly green.
Avatar m tn When I woke up this morning, I suddenly got the feeling like there is some liquid built up in my chest (the feeling is right on the top of the chest, where the neck begins). As I am very wary of coughing (I sometimes have a cough that I can't stop and it makes me short of breath, so I avoid it) I didn't try to see if I can expel whatever it is. I wonder could this be an allergy, or could it be something else? I googled my symptom but I found nothing.
Avatar f tn Don't discount acid reflux as the culprit, or underlying problem. I have acid reflux and if it goes untreated, or gets out of control, I have allot coughing and cough up phlegm. It's usually milky, to yellow in color and it can be thick. It wouldn't hurt to try an over the counter drug, like . You don't have to have heartburn symptoms, to be suffering from acid reflux. Good luck and hope all is going well.
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 n tn I had a cold about a month ago which left me with sneezing green snot and a constant ache in the face close to the nasal area. 2 weeks ago the symptoms in the nasal area subsided, I started coughing alot, sometimes even keeps me from sleeping. every morning I wake to cough green sometimes brown phlegm and sneeze out green snot.
Avatar n tn I had bronchitis in my first trimester. I could hardly sleep because of endless coughing. I kept coughing up brown phlegm and my chest hurt. The doctor gave me some antibiotics for it. I refused the xray.
Avatar m tn So I blew my nose and there was dry blood in my boogies. I am worried that the blood in my phlegm from my throat is coming from my lungs and it is a sign I have lung cancer. Logic would say the blood is coming from my nose since there is blood there too. But with anxiety like I have logic is thrown out of the window. I already have a flexible sigmoidoscopy scheduled because of small amounts if blood in stool. GP and gastro don't seem concerned.
Avatar n tn Is it normal, or usual for a heavy marijuana smoker (numerous times daily for 6+ years), to be coughing up clear phlegm with dark gray/brown globular matter encased in it, mainly in the mornings and randomly in small amounts throughout the day? In the mornings there are much more dark pieces in clear phlegm, and when it randomly happens throughout the day, it is just small specks or chunks encased in clear phlegm.
