Coughing phlegm worse night

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing phlegm worse night


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 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 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 m tn Hi, Can you please advise me for phlegm, I have been suffering from excessive phlegm and bad cough, it gets worse in the night after I go to sleep. Phelgm gets stuck in my throat and having difficulty breathing. The phlegm is not so dark, it is in whitish color. I have seen my Doctor, he prescribed me Amoxicillon 500 mg, benefryl cough syrup. but look like it is not helping. Please advise.
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 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 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 I have it during the day but it gets worse at night is there any suggestions on what I should do? I make myself some warm lemon and honey drinks but still doesn't help reduce the phlegm I'm so tired of this cough! !!!
Avatar f tn using ocean spray for nasal and still need to get cough meds. I was up all night literally coughing. Tried sleeping on couch so I wouldnt wake up my husband but it wont go away!
Avatar f tn I am 47 and have had asthma all my life. I have been on Sirdupla 25microgram/ fluticasone 125microgram for about 20 years. I have noticed for the last 5 years I have large amounts of phlegm/ mucus on my chest causing me to cough when I laughed , had to talk loud, came into the warm from the cold etc. All my colleagues and family noticed how I couldn't hold a conversation without coughing and so many people commented on how long I've had a cough.
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 f tn I experience several bouts of heavy coughing that can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes while coughing up mostly clear phlegm with some of it a sea green color and at other times tinged pink - though this is rare. One out of ten coughing fits ends with me vomiting .... I guess it would be best described as a clear foamy form of phlegm. I do experience hot and cold flashes, sometimes it helps my breathing to step outside and sometimes it makes it worse.
Avatar f tn Three days later his fever finally went away, but his cough has gotten drastically worse. He is coughing to the point of vomiting. He has also started moaning in his sleep, when he's able to sleep. Second doctor says "she agrees with the first doctor but his asthma is exacerbated due to drainage also". She prescribes Neb treatments four times a day, inhaler PRN, and Loratidine-D (which has sudafed in it to help dry up the mucus).
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 f tn something that will also soothe the back of your throat too.. laying down i heard can make the phlegm worse so maybe prop up on some pillows??
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 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 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 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.
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 By the next day I started coughing, with sligthly dark yellowish phlegm every time, to the point where my voice has gotten super hoarse because of the straining I do to spit it out. At this point I got a covid test and it was negative, so I started taking an OTC expectorant with the hopes of getting it all out and, as expected, it did make my cough worse but the issue seems to be unresolved.
Avatar n tn I have a couple of ideas. Since the coughing is worse at night than the daytime we should look at the difference between the situations. That is at night he is lying down and during the day he is standing up or sitting. This suggests that perhaps gastric fluid is seeping up and going back down his trachea, precipitating an asthmatic attack. It also suggests his LES (Lower esophageal sphincter) is not closing properly. As we know a virus doesn't respond to antibiotics.
Avatar n tn For years I have had constant problems with clearing my throat and coughing constantly. At night it get worse. It feels like I can never get enough air and someome is sitting on my chest. I'm tired of living this way any help would be appreciated.
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 f tn Because my dog interacts with other dogs a lot, when he developed a "cough" I immediately took him to the vet. He had no fever, is eating and drinking normally and his activity level is normal - he doesn't at all act like a sick dog. I have kept him away from other dogs to avoid getting them sick. The vet diagnosed him with kennel cough and put him on Doxycycline 100 mg - he takes 1 1/2 pills twice a day. He started them on Tuesday.He has also had a Bordetella vaccine.
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!...
