Coughing up mucus balls

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up mucus balls


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 f tn 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). I certainly am no healthcare professional, but any time you have these symptoms, just know it's probably Bronchitis, which will resolve itself eventually. Ask your doctor if this comes back again. Stay well!
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 f tn For the past month, i've been coughing up clear sputum, sometime looks like there's gel-balls or bubbles. It's hard to explain. Should i be worried about this? I don't know if it's from the phentermine, the cigarettes, or because i might be coming down with a respiratory cold. Can i please have some advice? (NO ONE in my family know's i smoke. It's been a secret i've held from everyone. I'm scared to find out i have lung cancer or something terrible and breaking the news to everyone....
Avatar n tn My daughter has been breathing out of her mouth for the last 6 days. No fever, or runny nose or coughing. She has a lot of white mucus on her throat. They ruled out strep and think it is a vius. But since she hasn't had a fever I was wondering if it could be allergy related. Can allergies cause white mucus on the throat? And can allergies show up as a virus in the blood?
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 f tn I had the same thing. I got it after an influenze bout a few years ago. After doctor's pills, allergy pills and several different types of inhalers that did nothing to improve the situation I was about ready to give up and in a despairing revalation realized I would have to live with this for the rest of my life. I did one last search on the internet and came across a posting that has starting to help me. My mucus is becoming "runnier" each day and my sinuses are clearing up.
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 i am so glad came across this page my mom is a nurse and for years i tried to explain these stinky balls i was coughing up but she had no idea what i was talking about. I even said thesame thing that chronic phelgm said.the smell is so bad that even if you wash your hands it still stinks. I am not a smoker and neither is my sister who gets them as is nice to know that other people kno wwhat i am talking about! I do however get really bad sinus infections.
Avatar n tn I would definitely talk to you doc especially if you are still coughing up this crud. Good luck, I hope you get answers soon.
Avatar n tn as a symptom so naturally I panic. No pain whatsoever is associated with this and I've tried coughing up stuff only to get mucous if that. No blood or anything weird. I'm 37 years old, male and unfortunetely smoke which makes me worried. Has anyone else experienced this and I just don't know if I need to be real worried or not.
Avatar f tn Tonsils are size of golf balls and severe sinus pain and earache ever. Coughing up thick yellow mucus. I cannot imagine what my baby is experiencing. I'm just miserable.
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?
242516 tn?1368227505 Doc, I can't stop coughing and am bringing up pus. Well, you're not alone. Millions of other people are in your shoes right now, and over 90 per cent of them have viral infections with coughs productive of colored phlegm. You should watch out for symptoms of pneumonia but if you have a fever under 100 degrees, pulse rate less than 100, less than 24 breaths per minute, and your doctor doesn't hear anything in your lungs, you can be reassured that pneumonia is unlikely.
Avatar m tn This gives the cilia in the closed nostril a chance to clean out all the pollution and mucus. When it’s clean, it opens up and the other side is closed to repeat the process. The things that swell up to close your nostrils are called turbinates. Keep this in mind when you are blowing your nose. One side will always seem more congested than the other, even if it’s clean. Step One: Spread your feet so they are about 2 feet apart, for better stability in the shower.
Avatar m tn After pissing yesterday and it hurt I jerked off instantly and jizzed to test for pain when that happened and no pain. However today when I woke up I had slight pain or soreness in my left nut. I showered and went to Pilates class and felt no pain there. Later I felt a little pain of soreness on the right side (both temporary) and I think I felt the pain again on the left after but not sure. Right now it seems fine.
Avatar m tn results came bac negative, she also checked me visually and i showed her the bump and she said that it dosent look like herpes because it's just a bump and hasnt scabbed or healed and dosent hurt, but i developed more symptoms i had a cough that lasted about 5 days, a cough tht felt like i was sick (coughing hard enough i can force mucus out of my throat), but i didn't get a fever after the results i thought i was in the clear.
Avatar m tn let me know if it works, because I have almost the exact same thing as you. I have no idea why I have this or where it came from. Like I've said "I went to bed normal one night and woke up with this ****" I too have what I call mucus plugs that are hard to cough up, I think they get stuck in my airways. I have no clue why. I have found on these posts, that nobody knows why we have this and that doctor's find it all a big mystery as they can not figure it out either.
Avatar n tn In July of 2004 I got my tonsils removed after seeing an ear nose ant throat specialist. You see, I was coughing up those white, stinky balls about three times a week. They would get stuck in the back of my throat, and made my breath smell so bad. I told my dentist about it while I was getting my routine cleaning, and she referred me to the ear nose and throat speacialist. He told me that since I was coughing them up so much, it was time to get my tonsils removed.
975514 tn?1325001538 I have beginning stages of COPD, Emphysema and have had severe Asthma and chronic Bronchitis since my teens (20 + years) I notice that when I forget to take my Advair for a couple of days, I end up congested, short of breath and coughing. I absolutely am happy with Advair as it has given me a second chance at life.

I have had constant headaches and this has been going on a week now but I just told my mother today!! I don't know if it is nothing but a cold or if I should go to the doctor!!

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.
525485 tn?1314364901 I woke up this morning coughing pretty hard. While I was coughing, a bunch of fluid came out of me. So I naturally got up and went to the bathroom to check it out. It didn't seem like pee. :P tmi, I know. but I was consistently wet all morning and in between coughing fits even. So I got a shower about 12:30pm, called my OB and they sent me to L&D to make sure that it wasn't my waters breaking.
Avatar n tn I've tried saline sprays and sinus drops but they don't really do much... some days are worse than others, and I also get a lot of mucus build up in the mornings. Doctors said that I don't have PND and said that the saline washes should remove the smell, but they could care less as it's not really working... I'm wondering whether the sinus irrigators would work at all? It's really hard to focus in my classes.
Avatar n tn if you find a method that works best for you that clears up sinus issues, therefore drying up the mucus ( = less tonsil stony grossness), perhaps the vertigo will abate in time.
Avatar n tn During the day I felt like a growth or obstruction was inside my nose. I used the neti pot sometimes, I ended up blowing clear slimey mucus. I wasn’t sure if it was working. I bought over the counter saline spray, that burnt really bad. And when I was outside and the wind blew I breathed it in and it immediately burned the back of my throat through my inhaling in my nose. It was like the air didn’t even pass up in my sinuses and then down to my throat. Like a strait shot.
442658 tn?1499298929 Charcoal is also a very good digestive/stomach calmer, and is even used for stomach problems in humans sometimes. Have you seen a lot of mucus in your dog's stool? Has your dog coughed up or thrown up mucus wads? It's prime allergy season right now.
