Coughing up jelly like

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up jelly like


Avatar n tn what are these clear jelly like balls im coughing up? and what does it mean.
Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been coughing up clear jelly like Mucus Balls. I have been a smoker for 8 years, and I have Asthma. I wake up in the morning and in the middle of the night coughing up a lot of the little mucus balls. It happens a little bit through out the day. Sometimes they are balls and sometimes they are like a hair, but made of mucus. I am very scared and do not have health insurance. I am 25, and thought I was pretty healthy. Please someone, HELP!
Avatar n tn But,suddenly,without warning,I am coughing,badly,on just drinking water,sore throat,coughing up solid little jelly balls,like I have bronchitus.But it is the darn stuff from my sinus,draining into my throat,(sore throat)and into my bronchial area,I bet!! From hot weather,I got bronchitus? From the allergies from the stuck draining out of my sinus? Yoicks!!! I am so upset,I am going tomorrow morning to emergency,as I do not want to get bronchitus again.
Avatar m tn However, just now she was kind of coughing then stopping to swallow then coughing. I think it upset me more than her. Nothing came up and she seems fine and back to herself now. This lasted less than a minute. She is definitely eating fine and seems to be drinking enough from what I have observed. She is passing urine and faeces as normal for her. Could this still be a hairball?
Avatar n tn Last 2 nites I slept 4-5 hours, waking to violent coughing up this jelly. Then my throat is closed... and of course I need to take in oxygen and cannot. I've learned to squeeze my neck and be extremely patient and take in enough air to plug my nose and blow hard while holding my breath to push open the wind pipe. Cold liquids intensify the phlegm... I've been drinking lots of water to be healthy and now I am hindered by it. Hot coffee or tea is comfortable but still works up the jelly...

Avatar f tn It is my understanding Montek is prescribed to controls asthma but does not cure it. The standard advice is continue to take montelukast even if you feel well. Do not stop taking montelukast without talking to your doctor. I assume your doctor knows about the "jelly-like balls".. that is unknown to me, but I do not suffer from asthma. I do suffer from nasal congestion and that is my main reason for engaging in this Community.
782115 tn?1245687675 The sputum was thick and looked like a giant glob of petroleum jelly - he says that this is normal, but my mucous is not so thick and gel-like. He has been smoking since he was 13 and I am worried about him. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
1105011 tn?1257984167 A few weeks after starting treatment, the coughing stopped but I started having skin rash, shortness of breath with a slight head ache, and a clear jelly like phlegm that rises up my throat. I find lying to sleep very difficult and sounds start coming out of my chest when i am lying down. And this is now 2 months after I started treatment.
782115 tn?1245687675 The sputum is very sticky and looks like a giant glob of petroleum jelly - he says this is normal, but my own sputum (which only occurs when I am sick) is not so thick or gel-like. He said that his throat and chest felt better after coughing up the mucous. He has been smoking since he was 13, and I am worried that he might have a serious condition. Thanks in advance for your help!
1301836 tn?1305625415 well its such a surprise, because i was away monday thru tuesday ive not caught up with my week, and so its thursday and scan day. its scheduled for 6.30pm a strange time but i guess thats ok, Dave can't come with me because the rules say no kids9because they sometimes have to give out bad news) and so he'll be at home with them. they've gone for a walk along the canal at Bath but as ive a chest infection ive stayed at home.
Avatar f tn Iv never seen that much discharge my hole pregnancy also the way it look was like white jelly in my vagina. Could this mean my mucus plug is braking. Or early labor. I also just had a nose bleed.
Avatar n tn I am 39 years old and I am suffering with thick clear mucous almost looks like jelly. Feels like something lodged in my throat when I clear my throat nothing comes up.. My coughs are not productive If I take a breathing treatment I am constantly trying to clear my throat and I begin to feel nauseated. At night when I lye down I am wheezing I have to literally sit up in the bed and sleep. I am on various meds for allergy and asthma. I have been given antibiotics with no resolution.
577132 tn?1314270126 Fever, snotty nose, sneezing, aches, and jelly knees that wouldn't hold me up. Had to go to bed within 30 minutes. Suspect it was a combo of finally finishing work for the year (oh how good that feels!!) and extreme fatigue as well as the interferon hit. I have NO IDEA how I have managed to keep pushing myself to work some days.
Avatar f tn When I put my hand to my chest I can feel it so I cough it up and it's gone. It's never ending. The mucus balls are jelly like green yellowish and almost the size of a dime. It scared me. I'm not a smoker and I been on antibiotics, amocillian 500mg every 6 hrs for 3 days now. I've gotten a steroid shot at my dr and my insurance just ran out so there's no way to go back. Since all the coughing ive been doing I've irratated my throat and I can barely talk I sound horse.
Avatar n tn When I first get up in the morning and I take a drink of water normally because I feel dehydrated I feel the mucus start forming. I then start coughing and trying to spit up the mucus. It is really been horrible. I eat and then 30 minutes later I am thowing up my food. I have been treated with antibiotics and cough medicine but the cough and the mucus still persist. I am so tired of urinating all over myself when I cough. I am exhausted and keep getting the run around.
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 m tn I just had this same thing happen to me once again, I ate some grapes, a small tub of orange flavoured jelly (Jell-O for those outside of UK) a peach yoghurt and a glass of milk and at times it feels like my airway is blocked, i've been sipping water but i think its just adding to the build up, what should I do?
Avatar n tn We started her on medication and went back for our follow up today. She is still consistently running fever each afternoon and very tired and coughing but still doesn't act like she feels bad. The dr today did another xray and said that despite being on meds her pneumonia has gotten considerably worse. She wants to refer her to a pediatric pulmonologist to have some other things checked but she didn't want to expand on what she was wanting her checked for. I am very concerned.
Avatar m tn so far, it's been clear but I remember when it had originally started a few years ago when i had a really bad cold and was coughing my brains out every minute and blowing my nose like a trumpet all the time. Anyway, I did goto an ENT and he took a thorough look and said it's because of the blowing of the nose because i he saw some blown vessels in the back of my nose.
Avatar n tn I have wheezing and constantly trying to move the mucus up from my airway. It is like a clear jelly. Sometimes it hurts when I take a deep breath, feels like I ran in the cold air. Now in addition to that, I sneeze alot, and get an itchy nose, stuffy most of the time, & occasional scratchy throat. Once I fall asleep, it never bothers me, but once I'm up it starts up. What kind of a doctor should I be seeing for this. Does it sound like allergies or do I need a pulmanary dr.

Avatar n tn During this time, I had difficulty speaking and was constantly coughing up flem. I went back to work on Thursday. 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.
Avatar f tn Did the vet also bring up that it could be from hairballs? If she did, I would do some petroleum jelly. I do it for my cat every day. Try it, it might help!
Avatar n tn What will always stand out in my mind is the fact that he came out coughing. He coughed for so long, the doctor wanted to give him a treatment, not sure what it was, but the nurses said he was ok. Well since birth he has always sounded like he had a cold. He has alwas had a constant rattle on his chest. That continued from November til May/June this year. About two weeks ago it started all over again.
640565 tn?1228505863 Imagine a small pearl imbedded inside a thick peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Now lay that sandwich flat in the palm of your hand. Now cough. Will the pearl fall out of the sandwich? Nope. An earthquake can't make that pearl fall out of that sandwich. Now, think about how the uterus is built. It is not an empty space. it is a supersticky, thickly lined superstrong muscle shaped like a collapsing letter: c.
