Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm night sweats


Avatar m tn I take nexium for the reflux. Recently I started coughing due to a cold - nasal phlegm. Last night I had hot and cold sweats and now feel low energy.
6882875 tn?1385743698 Basically my symptoms that started just over a year ago are constant fatigue, daily pain in lower left rib cage area, chronic coughing, night sweats, occasional swelling of lymph nodes on collar bone and iron deficiency range of 7-11 (not anemic as hemoglobin is okay). My WBC ranges between 3.9 - 5.6. Doctors can't seem to figure out what is going on.
Avatar m tn First and foremost I know I need to test to be sure. Just hoping someone can give me an honest answer so I can know if my anxieties are unfounded or not. Within the timeframe of ARS, I developed a sore throat. This sore throat lingered and then subsided somewhat. Not long after I developed a productive cough, producing yellow/green phlegm. About 10 days since symptoms first began, I am having serious coughing fits. Taking a deep breath causes significant coughing.
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 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 finished my medrol pack but coughing and difficulty of breathing is still there. I have night sweats when I started Medrol and got a tinge of blood in my phlegm twice so he ordered chest xray cause he was thinking that I might have TB but chest xray is normal. I've went to see him again after finishing Medrol and he prescribed me a second round of Z pack because my phlegm became yellow every morning.
Avatar m tn 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. any idea why i still cant get rid of this 100%? somehow talking and eating certain foods triggers mild coughing spasms now at night. 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 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 I have an almost 4 yr old daughter, who at night wakes up coughing, gagging on to much phlegm, and follows with throwing up. Last night she threw up 6 times. No this is no the flu, or something she ate. This happens once a week. She generally wakes up with alot of phlegm and has a hard time coughing it out. Any words on this??
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 m tn I have a continuing buildup of thick heavy phlegm which I have extreme difficulty coughing up even using Mucinex. It goes on all day and all night. I am getting little to no sleep and am wearing down. I have gone to numerous Doctors and emergency room visits. They just give me more prescriptions for antibiotics and different steroidal inhalers and have also told me to use Mucinex. But the Phlegm is so thick and sticky it can take hours of constant coughing to get something up.
Avatar n tn But within the week I started to have night sweats and episodes of fever a couple of times a day, and have been coughing, sometimes productive, but mostly a dry cough. I seem to get better for a couple of days then the cycle starts again. I did provide a sputum sample to a local health clinic for bacterial evaluation, and it came back negative. However, they do not have the best track record for accuracy. Does this sound like a viral illness? any suggestions?
Avatar n tn the phlegm im coughing up in the morning is the normality of phlegm coughed up by a normal smoker.
Avatar f tn I cough up thick yellow phlegm and wheeze terribly every day from about 10 AM until 1 PM. By late afternoon I am absolutely fine. At night when I go to sleep I feel something (phlegm?) deep in my throat. However, I do NOT feel anything draining from my sinuses any more (as I did at the very beginning of all of this), nor is my nose runny, nor do I feel any sinus pressure. Allergy medicine has had no affect. Should I be worried? What could this be? Allergies? Infection? Please help.
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 ve had a really bad cough with phlegm. 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 n tn I want to know why I have these symptoms of constant feeling of something in throat and coughing up clear thick phlegm and waking up all times of night coughing and feel like a dryness in back of throat behind ears.
Avatar m tn It may be that the medication you are taking is causing the excessive phlegm and coughing. With me it was a side effect of Advair.
Avatar m tn First a little esp after exercise and then more and more. Coughing would continue until I expelled phlegm which was light color. At night coughing could be initiated by changing sleep positions and more phlegm. Wheezing common but constant cough is the worse. Continue to feel that I have to expel. Allergist checked for allergies found none, respirologist scoped lungs and were ok, biopsy ok also. Rescue inhalers and steroidal inhalers(Symbicort,Zenhale, Nasonex) did not show improvement.
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 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 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 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 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 m going to choke except for chicken noodle soup. When I cough, I spit up clear phlegm and sometimes the coughing hurts my chest really bad. Sometimes when I cough the phlegm I sometimes choke on it a little bit and can't breathe for 1-5 seconds and I also sometimes have trouble swallowing. I made few scenes when I was gasping for air, especially this one night I couldn't breathe for 5 minutes and trying to get air, I had to wake my parents up to help me.
Avatar f tn I fractured a rib from coughing so much a year ago which still hurts. I'm extremely exhausted and feel like I'm forcing myself to breath since my body doesn't want to and my tongue feels like a bite it but I don't and it swells at sometimes at night and I'm constantly coughing and I feel like I'm drowning in mucus or phlegm. Every other week I become so sick for a day or 2 then it goes away. I'm just tired of feeling like this me having no answers.
