Coughing up little white chunks

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up little white chunks


Avatar n tn For about eight years now (since I have moved to Huntsville, AL from PA), I have been spitting up yellowish-white pea-size chunks with a foul odor from my throat (usually come when coughing or sneezing). I have been feeling okay otherwise with no fever or any other symptoms. I have since been on a wide spectrum of antibiotics for various sinus infections which have not helped the chunks. They come up periodically usually about once every one to two weeks.
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 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 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 I noticed for the past couple of months a very bad taste in my mouth, but not coughing up little white smelly balls. I know about those My family experience those every now & then...strep throat, but never these stones people have been talking about. This one I noticed last night is actually pasted in a pocket in the back of my mouth & I can't get it out because I begin to gag if I keep trying.
Avatar m tn I'm worried she will get used to me feeding her and she will forget how to eat on her own. One more thing, I did try to give her regular cat food that had some little chunks of meat that I finger fed her. She started coughing after swallowing it. What can that mean?
Avatar f tn Some of the pieces looked like a white worm. There is no smell and it looks like when you mix white flour with a little water to make glue. I then sneezed and some of this white sticky non liquid mucus came out of nostril. I thought it was a guayava fruit because it has similar color when cut up. I realized that this could not be it and am concerned because I have never had anything like this come out of my mouse and much less from my nose. Help..Any info on what it could be.
Avatar m tn I bent my head back, poured saline into my nostrils, pinched them, and did a reverse sit-up until my back was flat on the ground, and tilted my head back a little further. Then I sat up, and the saline poured from my nostrils (if you try it, you may want a bowl in between your legs to drain). No water got into my ears, which is always a concern, and although I no longer get sinus infections, a lot of clear phlegm got flushed out this way.
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.
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 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.
675347 tn?1365464245 At the moment I DO home cook half of her food (for instance she has either chicken/ Tuna/Salmon/white fish/rabbit/beef....(which she's not allergic to) plus a little veg. usually carrot/green beans/cabbage/peas. As well as her Holistic Dog Kibble (which she has been on for years and thrived on as far as I can see) She also has a small slice of apple in the evenings, which she loves, and occasionally a very small piece of wholemeal toast. I don't add salt or any seasonings to her food.

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.
1455116 tn?1330509017 My voice is also a little hoarse and I'm coughing a little. He has asked when he did the second stick if it made my ear hurt and I said it had made my jaw hurt. I wasn't given any paperwork on what to expect going home or anything.
Avatar m tn It's best not to do this just after your meal as you may throw back up some of your meal. It's better to wait a little bit after your meal so that you don't end up barfing your dinner up. You'll have to try to ignore your gag reflex in order for this to be successful. I can actually feel the stuck food bits through the soft palate of my throat/nose area at the very back.
Avatar m tn Thankfully the sun came up so I got up drove around so I can get my mind off it, it's a little better now not craving it as bad or as emotional. I wish I could just take Xanax and sleep for 12 more days without the stress if work and relationship. I still get up and get out almost everyday for atleast a couple hours, sit in the sun tried to workout (didn't do much at all, just made me tired and couldn't sleep) I took a Xanax to give me some sleep which it did, so that helped.
Avatar n tn I went to an ent and had no results but after research and discovering it was tonsil stones (horrible taste from the throat feeling like something was stuck back there and occasionally relief from choking up a little white ball of disgustingness) I decided to talk to a different ent he knew exactly what it was and as of right now he says to gargle twice a day with a 1 to 4 solution of hydrogen peroxide.
Avatar f tn Hi Tony, hope you are well. Just an update on Scooby: he has been much the same this week and had his blood tests on Thursday evening. Unfortunately since then he seems to have taken a turn for the worse. Yesterday (Friday) he was very slow eating his food and only managed around half of his normal portion. This morning he is very tired and has eaten very little. I took your advice and gave him some rice and chicken which he ate.
Avatar n tn When I started to clean the house and decorate for Christmas my face started to throb a little so I stopped. It’s only been 5 days since my operation . I got up this morning and wanted to go to work but thought it best to rest today. I am hoping this will stop me from getting sick as much since my past sinus infections started to travel to my lungs which started to cause bigger problems for me.
Avatar n tn I had the same problem for like 4 years and it has just recently cleared up in a week. i had constant white coting on my tongue, would brush/scrape 3 times a day. i could not talk to people up close. I mean my breath was terrible, people would hold thier nose, cough and turn away. one of my nostrtils would block every now and then. The smell go so bad that i had to stop going out on social occasions.
Avatar n tn The smell is gone. I suffered for about 7 or 8 years. I did a little research on the internet. Look up Thornwalt's Cyst/ Good Luck everyone!!!
Avatar m tn Originally i thought it was from the cat that i got but my inhaler does not fix this issue the only thing that helps me breath easier is coughing up whatever is in the back of my throat and it looks white and slimey so im thinking it is the stomach acid.
Avatar f tn When I moved from my apartment of 8 years, where they had both lived since kittens, into a house in the country, Mittens began licking her front legs and throwing up hairballs and then would throw up white foam and couldn't stop throwing up this white foam. I had made many trips to the vet, many tests (xrays, blood work, etc.) and nothing wrong with her. She would have to get Reglin shots (pharmaceutical that blocks something in the brain that tells them they really don't have to get sick).
Avatar m tn About two months ago she started moaning a lot while she was just lying down. Sometimes it is loud enough to wake us up at night. It really does sound like she is in pain, and she is not the type of dog to ever whine or cry, she is very tough. Prior to this, the only time she has ever cried from pain was when I accidentally closed the door on her tail. It's not a constant moan, but somewhat frequent throughout the night or in the evening when we are watching tv.
Avatar n tn Last week I had a sinus surgery to open my sinus passages because of chronic sinusitus. I have had this since february and this "cold" has persisted up until the surgery. So a little over a week ago I had this surgeryu and yesterday was when I first had this neon yellow discharge come out of my nose. I think it was the left nostril but I didnt think to check until everyone was posting it...
