Coughing up mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up mucus


Avatar n tn For the last 4 years I have been coughing up mucus after every meal. It doesn't matter what I eat. And I often clear my throat throughout the day. I got my gallbladder out 2 yrs ago, no effect (not sure if there would be). I have had an upper endoscopy and a barium swallow which none showed any abnormalities. I have been taking Ranitidine (300mg) for over a year and now they added Aciphex 20mg..... no relief. Symptoms are still there. What could be wrong?

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 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?

1061329 tn?1261717514 I have a nebulizer and it helps a bunch with coughing up mucus, but too much makes me dizzy. I don't have health insurance, so I go to county hospital usually. But all they do is give me breathing treatments and a shot of prednisone and send me home. Now, I have a few prednisone pills left over from last time I was sick. Can taking these help? Some cold medicines that I've tried in the past (Nyquil, Sudifed, Robitussen, etc) seem to make my asthma worse.
Avatar n tn rushtyyyyy green and yellow flem should not be coming up from allergy unless it is stomach acid. Usually allergy is clear mucus. I'm not a doctor but I wonder if it is a bacteria infection. Sorry I don't know the correct answer. Maybe the doctors are correct too. I just personally haven't heard of colored mucus from allergy. Allergy can cause mucus that can lead to bacteria infection too. See another doctor.

Avatar f tn Since we are talking about coughing. I had a few questions of my own. I have had issues coughing for the past 4-5 years. I caught constantly. Sometimes it makes my headache worse but sometimes I don't have a headache so it doesn't bother me. I do have sinus disease as per my MRI. So that explains the post nasal drip. I always have problems coughing whenever I am near or around water. For example I cough so much in the shower that sometimes it will make me throw up or gag.
Avatar f tn When I get up in the mornings I always cough up a ball of hardened mucus that sometimes looks spaghetti-like. It's simply old mucus that's been sitting in my throat all night that I cough up in the morning. Mucinex taken with a whole cup of water helps me clear the nasty balls of mucus right up. Also, fatigue is a super common symptom of Bronchitis. As for the fullness: with Bronchitis you get dried-up and dehydrated which, for me, can cause water retention (a.k.a., bloating).
Avatar n tn Why do I keep coughing up mucus only in the morning? I don't have a stuffy nose either, just this problem in the morning. What is wrong with me?
Avatar m tn Every year I've suffered from a serious bout of coughing which has lasted anywhere from a week to a few months. I keep coughing up mucus throughout the day. If I resist the, for example when I'm in class it gets worse and builds up until I can't hold it back any more. Lately it's come back again in full force, and I was wondering how I could make it stop. It's irritating, gross, annoying, embarrassing and painful.
Avatar m tn i started getting a sore throat and then stuffy nose, cough you know the drill, then about week after that i got diarrhoea which lasted for 4 days. After that i started getting joint pain and consist coughing up mucus. Ive also had slightly swollen lymph nodes but non tender and i dont know if it was just anxiety driven. Also been itchy all over but also unknown if anxiety driven. I told my partnee to get tested and he said he came back negative, i didnt get tested.
Avatar n tn No problem there, I have had bronchitis several times. What concerns me is that a few days ago I was coughing up pink mucus. Then it turned into a peach color, now it is getting brighter with orange. Now, I did go to grade school so I am thinking yellow + red = orange. I asked the Dr. at the E.R. he didn't seem to have an answer for me and was not concerned about this. Why is my mucus a solid orange mass that I am coughing up? No, I have not eaten or drank anything that was orange or pink.
Avatar m tn Cough much better but still producing some thick clear mucus every day or so. A week ago, I coughed up some bloody mucus for the first time. The first episode was a small amount of bright fresh blood with some phlegm and on two subsequent occasions,the same day, the blood was darker and more integral with the phlegm. They were very small amounts each time. Today, a week later, there was again some phlegm which seemed to come from deep down and it had brown mucus with it.

Avatar n tn I might not cough all day, then it hits me. I do feel like I have some mucus I want to cough up after coughing. At times, a cold or warm drink seems to bring it on or just walking into air conditioning. My right nostril seems clear, a little congestion in the left. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn daily of vitamin B5. It thins mucus and reduces the inflammation that produces mucus. I take 1000 mg. daily. There are side effects except great comfort.
