Coughing up hard chunks

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up hard chunks


Avatar n tn I had fever, headache, chills, aches, and would wake up during the night in coughing fits. I haven't had a fever in over a week and a half but I still have the hacking violent cough. 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 f tn So gross, makes a gross taste in my mouth, and generally when I cough it sounds like I should be coughing something up but nothing actually comes up. Anyhow, I am still taking the medication, not sure why it made me cough blood, but we shall see what happens, I have all this medication for a week! Hopefully it works.
Avatar n tn Well, I stumbled on to some cards I have had on medical issues and one of them was titled Phlem Rocks. I have these yellow little chunks that sometimes break up and come up my throat. They smell horrible! I also saw another page called Esophagial Web which is like a shelf in your throat. Not sure on the spelling on that one but did you ever figure out what that grey thing was in your throat? Thanks!
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 For a really long time now (months) I have been randomly coughing up hard chunks of what looks like mucus. The back of my throat will start itching and if I try and scratch it I end up scratching off more of the hard mucus. I also couch it up sometimes. It is coming from the part of my throat that is bubbly on both sides, I think they might be my glads, I have tried to identify them using a diagram but Im not sure what they are. Is this something I need to be very concerned about?
Avatar n tn The other week I was eating some cake and somehow some of it went up my nose. I eventually got it down after snorting and blowing my nose. I didnt think too much of it until this week when the same thing happened again except I couldnt get the food down. The problem is now whenever I eat all my food keeps getting caught in my nasal cavity. My left nostril feels rather weird where it joins the bak of my throught, it feels like there is some sort of gap which wont close.
Avatar f tn t as bad even though I was coughing constantly - by week 3 the bronchitis cleared up but the mucus in my nidd and thrust was worse - at least once or twice a day I cannot breathe for 10/15 seconds and panic and anxiety develops!
Avatar n tn When i went to the doctor i was already sick for 2 months, they put me on a nebulizer and gave me an x-ray on my lungs, they said i either have pnemonea or bronchitis, it doesn't really hurt at all until night time, and i kinda throw up alot, well like once or twice a week, but i recall the last time i threw up, i coughed during and big white chunks came out, it seemed like puss or hard mucus, and they where clogging my throw up from coming out, soi was like choking, i don't know what to think
Avatar f tn And I cough out green sticky chunks from my throat I've been off the antibiotic now for over a week after I took all the pills. I'm 28 weeks 3 days and I'm coughing so hard I'm wondering if it's hurting my baby? Any suggestions to help?
Avatar m tn So I am a 33 year old male, in the past I was social smoker and drinker. I occasionally when I swallow (a "dry" swallow with saliva, never with food) I have a click or a pop sound I can hear it and I can feel it on the outside of my neck, just to the right and just above my Adams apple.
Avatar m tn Sometimes the click will get really bad (more often) and if I squeeze out my tonsils it will get better. Honest to goodness I have has this since 1999 (the click/pop) and I recall coughing up smelly chunks of "food" in high school '94/'95 and college '94-'99.
Avatar n tn Not only the bad breath and taste, but it causes alot of histemic reaction in the form of increased mucous and coughing. When I am able to cough them up, my symptoms subside. I believe they are a symptom of a fungal infection but so far cannot find a doctor who is willing to look into it.
Avatar n tn However, I still exercise regularly, experience no known symtoms of asthma except for these wonderful chunks of crud that seem to lodge themselves in my throat for about 3-5 days before I either choke on them at night, while speaking, end of swallowing them, or they come out. Force coughing doesn't work, I am trying to get one out currently. I am considering the vacuum at this point because it's more annoying if anything. I do have an inhaler but it doesn't seem to improve much of anything.
Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar n tn Sometimes it's worse than others. After brushing my teeth the other day, I coughed up two little yellow chunks of stuff. They were sort of the shape of hamburger. They smelt bad and were hard. I do not smoke either. I have no idea what to do to get rod of this, please help!!

Avatar n tn Some allergy meds have a tendency to make post nasal drip worse. Not only that but Claritin has a tendency to make hard chunks that only makes the feeling worse... If that's causing a sore throat, then he probably is reacting to the postnasal drip. I take Fluticasone for my post nasal drip and it seems to help, but when my allergies are aggravated it seems I don't feel the spray and I tend to spray more than needed... And yes...
Avatar n tn Murray Grossan, who invented the Grossan Irrigation Machine, and he removed her cyst and the smell went away. 4. One man did a sinus flush, and some white tofu-like chunks came out. The smell actually got worse for a while, then went back to normal. 5. Many people, particularly the ones who have a strong odor that other people are revolted by, had no change at all after doing a Sinus Flush. 6.

202436 tn?1326477933 DUH I haven't been eating and when I do it comes back. My BP was up just a hair at 140/79 and babies HB was 140. TODAY he makes the comment about the bumpy rides being a good idea and that I need to find a dirt road with a lot of bumps. WTF?!?!?! Friday he tells me not to. Then he tells me to come back on Friday which is my due date, but mentions that he is on call Thursday.
Avatar n tn When I eat I have to have a glass of water at hand to wash everything down because most foods cause violent coughing when I try to swallow. I have a raw blistered feeling in my mouth all the time. I also wake up with coughing that is so severe I have a hard (and noisy) time inhaling. The diagnosis I have been given is acid reflux into my larygeal area caused by weakened esophagal muscles from the virus. I take Aciphex 4 times a day. If I miss one I feel the acid in my throat right away.
Avatar n tn My symptoms are a cough where I periodically cough up chunks of yellow to green mucous (especially in the morning and at night), a dry cough inbetween off and on, very swollen nasal passages with a thick drip down my throat, difficulty swallowing some foods because my throat feels a bit swollen, lots of thick mucous coming from my nose that is at times clear, but generally opaque and yellow to green. The color varies throughout the day but is generally yellow currently.
Avatar n tn Tuesday morning around 3am she started coughing and woke up, I layed her back down and she ended up throwing up. We clean everything up and lay her down and 30 minutes later she does it again without coughing. We clean up again and 10 minutes later she starts whining and throws up again, by this time she doesn't have anything else to throw up. Yoou could tell the day before she wasn't feeling herself because she didn't eat like she normally does.
Avatar n tn whenever I enter a room with people or even pass by someone I cringe wondering if they'll flare up by sneezing or coughing multiple times, watery eyes, hiccupping, and scratching their nose. I have no other choice but to live with it and try to experiment on myself at the same time. I've learned a lot. I have become a very intelligent guy because of this. I've read probably hundreds of pages of myths, folklore, folktales, religious texts, medical journals from all over the world.
Avatar m tn It gently pumps the saline solution into your sinuses, and I don’t know if it pumps saline all the way up into the far reaches of your sinuses, because of gravity, but it follows the same line of treatment expressed here. Neilmed Sinus Rinses squirt saline into the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses. It does not work for infections in the upper sinuses, says so right on the box. It only costs $13 at any local pharmacy. There is also a neti pot, which was demonstrated by Dr.
Avatar n tn And on the weekends i smoke even more. I have been spitting up pieces of sometimes, white chunks, othertimes huge mucus "loogeys" thats are very dark yellow, almost orange or even rusty coloured. I have probably been spitting like this for about a year, more or less. Im underage and the fact that my mucus is already this bad, scares me since, i dont know what it really means. Does all that mucus/pieces, get expelled from my lungs? ive been smoking for almost 4 years.
Avatar n tn While mold in a house is most often found on walls, floors, ceilings, carpets and fabrics exposed to moisture, one particularly troublesome hiding place is inside the duct work and associated components of central forced-air heating and air-conditioning systems. Homeowners start up their central heating systems many find themselves suddenly coughing, wheezing and sneezing.
Avatar n tn it seems this past week and ahalf instead of coughing up one or two ,its been more. i coughed up 3 and i can tell there is more cause of the bad smell and taste my mouth has. and everytime i swallow i can tell its down there.u can't even swallow these things. they still come back up? u would think if it was food stuff it would get swallow down w/drinks or other food? i am glad to see i am not alone with this prob.
192055 tn?1263559137 I am always coughing and clearing my throat at meetings like an old man. Worse in a.m. when I wake up or out in cold walking the dogs. Or.... talking on the telephone or in a meeting. Always have a "frog" in my throat. Doc originally said it could be asthma, allergies, or acid reflux. Lung x-ray was okay. Tested negatively for asthma & allergies. Taking Zantac 75 but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
