Coughing up solid chunks

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing up solid chunks


Avatar n tn It feels like all of my air passages become blocked with mucus and I have trouble breathing. Sometimes the coughing is so severe I end up vomiting or I often gag almost to the point of vomiting (It's very exhausting.) It doesn't seem to matter what I eat, and it happens pretty much after every meal.
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 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 At it worst, it causes quite bad pain, and I can feel bile coming back up along with food, but it is not acidic. I would appreciate any advice...I haven't seen a doctor about it.
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 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!

2161407 tn?1337542302 This was a huge turning point for me and because my sleep is still in strange chunks at strange times, I've been up since 1 am reflecting on this journey. For those of you struggling to begin a clean life, for those of you in the first week of hell and for those of you who are now in a stage where it's all about's what I think we all need to remember. Stage one: Making the decision to get clean. You have to want this as much as you want to live.
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 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 m tn I went to the ER several times and finally wound up at an ENT office. I tried to explain the symptoms as food going up my nose when I ate, because to me that's how it felt. The ENT thought I was crazy. I went for a barium swallow which showed nothing unusual. I also have trouble swallowing my birth control pills (which I have to take daily) and they are just tiny things. They too feel like they are going up my nose and staying there. Sometimes it takes hours to get it down.
146866 tn?1199599344 We get so many people calling in with complaints about woodpeckers banging on the side of the house, crow families raising a ruckus in area, raccoons tearing up the yard, etc. Wonder if it would work on woodpeckers too? Thanks for getting back to me.
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 It hurts. Break up your pills into small chunks. At 5 weeks, I am back in the gym, riding stationary bikes for 30-45 minutes and doing lower body and some ab work. I'm finally off my Percocet and Loritab and have weaned myself from Ambien. Sleeping is presently on and off as my system adjusts to less meds (i still take 3000mg of Tylenol a day). Oh, In case your surgeon doesn't mention it, stay away from NSAIDs (advil) as they affect the fusion process...
Avatar n tn I went to pour out the container I had used to expel the solution from my nose, there were BIG SOLID chunks of white stuff in it. It resembled pieces of crumbled ricotta cheese. I had never seen anything like it. There were a whole bunch of these if I had chewed up ricotta and spit it into the container!! I did it a few more of these. I didn't get any more ricotta cheese (maybe one little piece that you could barely see) and decided that it was time to go to sleep.
485259 tn?1519050626 Don't plan on doing much for at LEAST a week or two. If you are lucky like some, you'll be up and at 'em. But if you're not, then you won't be disappointed and frustrated. 2. Make or buy muffins. Especially bran. You will need them. Don't ask me why. Ok...why? Because your meds will constipate you and make your stomach hurt. AND you will be too tired to make food. You can buy stool softeners too, but they don't make for a tasty breakfast... 3.
Avatar f tn You can't concentrate on anything but waiting to throw up. Since then, the intolerance kept creeping up, so that now when I even take a sip of alcohol, I will wake up in the middle of the night feeling queasy. I have tried both beer and some liquors. I have not tried wine, and my husband wanted to do an experiment and have me drink an O'douls to see what that would do to me, but frankly, it is so miserable afterwards that I didn't even want to risk it to see if that'd work.
Avatar f tn Being a single mom of 2 who also works full time, this is definitely not what I signed up for! I have some of the rx left and have given serious thought to taking one and just asking my doc to start me on a small dose of something else that's not as hard to come off of. From what I've read on here a lot of people have had decreased to no withdrawal symptoms if they were able to take a second med at the same time they were coming off of Effexor.
Avatar n tn I do notice it more at rest than I do when I'm up and around, although it did it on the treadmill at the gym yesterday. I also notice it when I am eating?? It is REALLY frustrating and can be embarassing to be gasping for a deep breath when you are out and about with friends or whatever. I do not believe that it is all related to stress. I am a school teacher, and have not worked since May 31, so my stress level is lower now than it ever is. Does anyone have any answers here?
Avatar n tn Thank you very much for your response. I will definitely bring it up to my ENT when I see him. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

Avatar n tn He got home at around six pm, and was going to get ready to go to church that night. As he got out of the car and was walking to the house, his liver gave out. He started coughing up blood. My aunt, uncle and cousins decided he would be better off at the hospital so they called the ambulance. By the time the ambulance got him to the hospital, this man had turned the color of a banana. I am not just talking his eyes, he was yellow from head to toe, even his tongue was yellow.
Avatar n tn After using the inhaler I always end up coughing up fluid and my breathing sounds gurgle-ly (so I don't take them any more unless I feel I really need to...note that I have never had a full blown asthma attack). I'm worried that it could be something else (was exposed to TB as a teenager, but took the "horse pills" for 6 months and was told I was fine), but none of my doctors will really listen to me.
Avatar n tn couldn't sleep because of the tingling. I basically only sleep when exhausted. The tingling started to act up more again; possibly because I might have overdone it yesterday. Anyone have suggestions how to sleep???
Avatar m tn They seem to love the trash and the sink (different fly?). Up to 6 months ago I felt like a bug was crawling on me when I sat on my couch and bed (different apartment), our first assumption was bed bugs and we treated the house (using bombs) for these, the crawling feeling slowed but never fully stopped. We recently moved (2 months ago) and I felt the same thing on the couch and bed, even worse actually. So much so that we had to throw the couch out.
961574 tn?1520651703 I go to the doctor next week for the blood work (beta), and hopefully I might be able to get an ultrasound done at the same time. Symptoms are showing up early with this pregnancy. I'm already looking pregnant from the bloating. And nausea is hitting me early too. We had a son 6 years ago. So this time around we're hoping it's a girl. It may be crazy, but we've already picked out a girl's name. Haven't come up with a boy's name yet.
Avatar f tn Please feel free to be wound up... Ive been wound up over this for a few years. Yes, this doctor turned out to be about the slimiest person I have ever dealt with. (You know the old saying, someone had to graduate at the bottom of their medical school) I fell for his sales pitch in him telling me everything I wanted to hear.
Avatar n tn It seems to be getting more frequent that I have fissures or cracks in the perineum area. I had always used witch hazel to heal up the fissures but that doesn't seem to work any more, in fact I'm wondering if I'm making the problem worse. I've been doing some research online and see that Drs. prescribe topical corticosteroid ointment, also read about trying lanolin cream or hydrogenated vegetable oil, thought I'd give that a shot.
Avatar m tn Combo treatments are part of the arsenal of any doctor who is up to date on the research. I'm concerned about a doctor who has not bothered to found out your e-antigen status and flatly eschews the idea of combo therapy.
