Coughing up flem and blood

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up flem and blood


Avatar n tn I have had the same problem with mucus and coughing after eating, and the problem is always solved when I take DI-AID (by Solgar, but there are a number of companies that make it). Apparently, a lack of digestive enzymes is the main cause of my problem, and after many years and many clueless doctors, a nutritional therapist in London very confidently directed me down the right path.
Avatar n tn Phlegm mixed with some blood could be due to irritation of the nose, sinuses, or lungs. Swallowing this blood will cause it to end up in your stool. On the other hand if you are coughing up blood and not blood-streaked phlegm, you should be seen on an emergency basis. For blood to be found in the stool, it must either originate in your digestive tract, or be swallowed in large quantities from another source.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Coughing up blood could be due to an infection a sinus infection or a lung infection. Sometimes trauma to the lungs can cause this or it could just be throat irritation. Therapy lies in treating the underlying cause. With your symptoms it is likely you may have developed respiratory infection . Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Pleurisy is an inflammation of the lining of the lung. There are many things that can cause pleurisy, but with severe pain and coughing up blood, whatever it is needs immediate medical attention. You may have an infection, and you may have a tumor in your lung. Nobody knows, but nothing good can come of riding it out. If you have an infection and you are not treated, you may do permanent damage to your respiratory system.

Avatar f tn You should call your physician, coughing up blood can be a serious symptom.
Avatar f tn I had told dr I had been coughing up blood for several days and they asked if it was streaked and I said yes. I saw a description on a web page using the description of looking like a partially scrambled egg and that is what it really looked like, not really streaked but kind of mixed. Now I have been on 500 mg Cipro for 4 of 7 days prescribed but still am coughing up same type of blood mixture. Am I just not allowing the medicine to work long enough or should I be contacting my doctor?
Avatar n tn Any way once off plane probebly the following day i was coughing up blood and flem, went to the doctors said probebly burst blood vesel in lung dont worry about it. anyway 6 weeks later back home the blood had gone but i was still coughing up alot of flem, always feeling it on the back of my throat. doctor said leave it a few weeks and see how you are anyway the same thing happend 18 months later when i went backgot the same, oh wait and see if it goes.....
Avatar n tn Every morning he has a terrible cough and it continues throughout the day-just more so in the AM. He is constantly coughing up flem. He has tried several cough medicines, nothing seems to help. His doctor has not been successful in getting it to loosen up. I am looking to see if you have any helpful suggestions, new direction to take etc...I am concerned more now because when he coughs he gets coughing so hard and the flem is so thick it actually makes him choke.
Avatar m tn In the mornings, right after awking, I am coughing up dark blood instead of flem. I've been on cumadon for 12 years and just had a stent inserted in my heart recently. What is the cause?
Avatar f tn I have had numerous blood tests and recently had a CT Chest scan which showed nothing, though I am still coughing up blood (its not huge amounts - though when I cough I bring up flem along with blood). I also get headaches which occasionally turn into migraines, Tired/lethargic. I am a smoker. 18 years of age.
Avatar n tn I thought nothing of it until last night when I had a coughing fit and coughed up what appeared (and tasted like) blood. It wasn't dark red but a light redish pink. Has this ever happened to anyone else? It has me kind of worried.
Avatar m tn We have taken meds and puffers nothing is working. I have been coughing then leads to vomiting either flem or froth, and gasping for a minute or so out load to replace hair in my lungs.It is the most horrible thing... I get headaches and feel very tired. But told that we are to just relax and takes time :( Well to take time it's been over a month that we have been so sick!!! I will keep you posted on our condition!
Avatar n tn There is radtion fibrosis on teh anterior wall of his heart, and with the valve leaking, this does not allow teh blood to flow correctly, and his kidneys can not get enough blood either from teh same so fluid is backing up in the lungs and causes congestion. It can be managed...that's what we're being told, anyway. His last radiation treatment was 7 yuears ago, and no problems until now. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I do not automatically start coughing, but the food just won't go down and I realize that to get rid of the discomfort, I must cough up the flem. What is causing this?
1495736 tn?1288972258 Most of yesterday I didnt notice any blood in the flem, but about 2am when I woke up coughing I ran to the bathroom and spit the flem out and it was all blood, a second time all blood since then mostly clear flem with a few streaks in it. Can this be something serious i am very worried because with all that I've been through, my kids decided to stay with him and I'm all alone and sick over this, so I smoke and smoke because if my kids dont want me I cant deal with it.
Avatar n tn hiya everyone well i see im not alone on here,theres many of you with the same symptoms as me and no answers! i started aprox 2004-2005 coughing up thick clear mucus.That sticky if you dont cough it out sometimes feels like your not taking no air down your throat,into your lungs.! (sometimes i feel very panic'y i have never experanced this in my past and im a 33 year old male.not over weight.try to keep fit.,but so far i am unable to cure.sometimes it eases off ,but never goes away.!
Avatar n tn I tried to ignore it until the day I passed out from the coughing. Shortly after I threw up while coughing and aspirated it back in a failed attempt to catch a breath. Off to the doctor I went and he knew immediately that I had Pertussis (or whooping cough). He explained that you usually get it after another illness and their is NO TREATMENT. Again, no treatment. Cough medicines with suppressants-expectorants-codeine do nothing and may even make the cough worse.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem and doctors aren't taking me ******* seriously I got it from a friend 8 or so months ago and it's been there ever since I'm constantly hoicking up flem and lumpy stuff it's disgusting and it's never ending doctors said it was tonstilitis at first but said it had gone after a few weeks even though my symptoms were still there they then proceeded to say it was nothing maybe allergies which I have never had ****** allergies my entire life after that didn't work they then gav
Avatar f tn on a morning when i wake up i always need to cough and clear my throat since about a year ago. but now it has extended to needing to do it throughout the day. sometime the mucus that comes up is small hard sticky lumps that nearly make me be sick as they get stuck in my throat. or some times theres a lot of yellow and white flem. its never clear. I'm wondering wat the cause of this is as i can constantly feel it there at back of my throat like a coating.
Avatar n tn m exhausted from being up at night, care for his siblings and him during the day, and worrying myself sick as I listen to him hack until he vomits. Isn't there ANYTHING a mother can do to help this kid? He is starting to look really exhausted with a weird tired look in his eyes and he is crying more and more from frustration and exhaustion. HELP!
Avatar n tn A few days ago, I developed a soar throat with very little coughing. Maybe three or four times a day I coughed. Today, I had a flem (sp?) come up with blood on two occassions. It was red in color, not dark. I have high blood pressure that is under control with medication and has been for 10 years. My last check up, my bp was 128/78. No other medical conditions.
Avatar n tn , reflux meds, prilosec, anitibiotics if cold, and dry the upper respiratory up so no mucus drips. She also said coughing begets more coughing and once the cycle is set up hard to change. Dr. Karen Lahive - Faulkner Hospital, Boston, MA My alt. med doc, said MOLD toxicity and allergy. Also tested me for mycoplasma pneum. I tested positive. They are now (at year 2) doing the DNA PCR for mycoplasm... plus lyme (positive bands), etc... Look up Biofilm as well.
Avatar n tn They say she has sarcoi (excuse my spelling) but the medications they gave her actually just seem to make her worse, they had put her on this certain medication and it ended up makin her blood pressure go up, and she started to have blurry vision and see light streaks, and she was disoriented she went to the hospital her bp was 205 over 105 , she was pretty much on her way to having a heart attack.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn Hey marty, I was originally going to suggest it could possibly be an ulser in your stomach as this would cause bleeding of the stomach and blood would come up to the mouth, but I'd also say that it could possibly be an infection of some kind that is making the lining of your throat and nose get dry or irritated and bleed but then they are trying to help this out by producing excess mucous, do you smoke?
Avatar n tn I searched on the internet and got scared by something called posterier nose bleeds, but I couldn't describe this as severe blood loss. The mixture of blood and phlegm was thick and stringy and made it difficult to swallow, until a went to the bathroom and kept spitting into the sink until the blood stopped coming. I'm 34 years old and a non-smoker. I would say I was of normal health, and occasionally get nose bleeds from the front of the nose, from the back is a first for me.
Avatar n tn Today, Saturday those symphtoms (cough, sore thoat and coughing up flem) appear to be gone. I returned to the internist this past Thursday, he took me off the anti-viral because it appears that it has not helped and he prescribed Ketoconazole an anti-fungal. (He also ordered blood tests for which I do not have results as yet) I started using this topical cream Thursday, it burned the first time. However, I have applied it as directed twice a day and no sign of improvement.
