Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm symptoms lungs


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 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.
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 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 Occasionally (3-5 times per day) I have had a very deep cough and I cough up a lot of phlegm from my lungs. I have had this for over 3 weeks now. In hindsight I probably did not heal because I have been training and not resting. I would ride 1 day, cough up a lot of phlegm and not feel great the next day, wait 2-3 days, feel just fine again and get back to training. Since it is winter, sweating in the cold air probably didn’t help much either.
Avatar n tn What I wanted to ask - as it will be nearly 3 months until this next appointment - as I am now not suffering *any* of the original symptoms (no coughing, no breathlessness, no wheezing and no tight chest) would it be reasonable and safe to assume that the those lymph nodes are probably no longer enlarged?
Avatar m tn I have the same problem whenever I have phlegm. It's so difficult to get rid off. Even if I stop coughing I can feel the phlegm still existing inside my throat.
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 m tn I have been exposed to airborne asbestos for 7 hours at a building site. I use an inhaler to reduce inflammation. When I stop using it my lungs get in flamed and I usually cough up a long fibre as if its in my long and been striped off. The sensation is sore. When I go back to inhaler my lungs get up green phlegm. I d'ont understand all this~~? Can green phlegm remove asbestos fibres from lung or is it just white phlegm.
Avatar f tn I sometimes cough and then cough up green phlegm. I have had upper gi and colonoscopy. It did show a hiatal hernia. I don’t know where this green stuff is coming from. Had anyone else had this problem? I especially get it when I workout.
Avatar f tn Since about the second or third week post quitting I started coughing up this weird white/gray phlegm that has a terrible, bitter acrid taste that coats my mouth and back of my throat almost like an oil. Similar to bronchitis sputum but not green or yellow. There's no tar in it, no black bits, and it's always a small amount but it's once a day, every day. Usually after I eat. I hate it, it's disgusting and I'm not sure why it's still coming up! Anyone else?
Avatar m tn Hi not sure if anyone will know this but worth a try, i have smoked for 41 years mostly roll ups with no filters or anything, but about 3 plus years ago i started putting filters in and after a few months started coughing up green phlegm i asked the doctor he just said getting older and smoking, Some days it seems worse than others its really strange, i don't smoke load about 15 a day but there dead thin and i only smoke half at a time.
Avatar m tn the brown phlegm is probably old blood... which sounds about right if you are on blood thinners (hence bleed easier and longer). Have you been coughing a lot? the lungs are quite vascular so maybe it's just from irritation? Are you sick as well??
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 I was recently taken to the hospital because my lungs were filling with water and phlegm. At that time, they said it was Pneumonia. But I had to go back a second time, and this time, they said my lungs were filling with water and phlegm, and my heart was enlarged. Now, they said the water in my lungs has nothing to do with pneumonia but is caused by my heart being enlarged. According to my latest X-Ray results, I have Cardiomegaly, left ventricular form.
Avatar n tn I have been having a deep cough with wheezing and greenish thick phlegm for 6 months now. The phelgm is coming from my lungs and is often like strings. When I breath it makes a whistling and rattling sound. I initially had a bad cold and then the cough just never went away. I have taken 3 courses of AB's, had a normal chest x ray in Jan and the oxygen levels are normal. I had a basic breathing test done and that was normal.
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 n tn It showed pneumonia in the bottom of both lungs.. I took cipiro for 2 weeks...Felt better now Im coughing bad and coughing up yellow phelghm. New xrays showed nothing.Whats going on? And what kind of pneumiona lives in the bottom of the lungs? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/283416'>Multiple Lung Nodules, Pneumonia, Sweats, Minor Atelectasis</a>.
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 f tn It made me feel better, however, after using up all of them, I noticed that I am still coughing up mucus/phlegm and I hear a slight vibrating sound in my lungs when I lay down. I need to know, is this just residual stuf that my body is getting rid of??
Avatar n tn For a month I have had phlegm from my sinuses, and I cough phlegm up from my lungs. The coughing is dry at times . I cough so hard that my muscles in my chest and lungs hurt. I cannot be in anyone's company because of the coughing, and spitting. What will help?
Avatar f tn I'm normally a healthy 22 year old woman with no long or short term illnesses or diseases. I maybe a little over weight, but nothing too significant. But for the last 3-4 days I have had this constant cough where I can't stop and eventually end up vomiting. Earlier this week I had the flu and thought I was developing strep throat. Went to the doctors and did a test and it was negative and they told me it was a 'viral strep.
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 Is there any effect on ingesting or swallowing the phlegm or mucus from coughing as opposed to spitting it out?
