Coughing yellow phlegm sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing yellow phlegm sore throat


Avatar n tn ) I've been reading a number of posts here, in the archives, about phlegm in the throat. I have phlegm in the back of my throat all the time. I'm certain this is contributing to my snoring. One extremely helpful post said that constant phlegm in the throat is comes from congestion that is above or below your throat. If the congestion is in the chest this could be due to asthma. I'm not asthmatic, I don't smoke or live with a smoker, so that's out.
192055 tn?1263559137 For about a year now, it feels like I have phlegm/mucus stuck in my throat and can't completely clear my throat. Also when I cough, its a lil wet and there is phlegm. When I started to have the problem, I went to the doc and he said it just may be sinuses and sent me on my way... but never went away. I went to the doc while I was in Basic Training in SC... then went to GA for 4 months... back to FL for a few months (where i use to live) and now I am in NC....
Avatar n tn But for the last two weeks, I have been coughing up heavy amounts of phlegm, from clear to yellow, to light green and back to yellow. The cough is hard and uncontrollable and I thought it was a bronchial infection. When I laugh, I hear (and feel) a wheezing that instantly produces coughing and phlegm. My doctor can't see me until next week and people have told me it could be anything from pneumonia to tuberculosis.
Avatar n tn This then eased a little however I still had a very irritable throat and incredible coughing and yellow phlegm, very little sneezing, which has now lasted for about two-and-a-half weeks. My sore throat and coughing have now eased almost two months after the first visit, but I still have stuffy sinuses. However for the last five days I am now having very loose stools/diarrhea. I also think I may be having a loss of appetite and may have had some weight loss.
Avatar f tn My nose is stuffed up on one side and there is clear and yellow phlegm present. I feel like my cough is coming from either my throat or deep in my chest cavity. I can breath fine when I'm not having a coughing fit, never smoked, normal appetite, no pressure or pain in chest, and no sore throat present at the time. If you have any ideas or insight on what may be going on, comments would be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I hacked up a real thick sample that was directly from my throat, and spit it out onto a tissue. I noticed a streak of blood on the tissue mixed with yellow phlegm. I continued to try to bring phlegm up, and didn’t notice the blood anymore. Then, about an hour later, I once again brought up a real thick sample from deep within and there was a smaller bit of blood (I had to inspect the tissue very closely to identify it).
Avatar n tn For the past few years now every few days I feel a lump in the back of my throat and after much gagging and clearing of the throat a very hard grey in color (about the color of chewed gum and same looking texture with about the same rubbery feel but harder) is produced with a very foul smell and taste. I cant seem to get rid of this problem.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn It is not dripping out but if I blow my nose there is a bit of blood. The rest of my symptoms (cough, sore throat, stuffiness) have been improving but would people say I should go to the doctor again, or let this pass?
Avatar f tn cough (just one) after I eat or drink anything to clear my throat and then several times of just clearing my throat without coughing for roughly 30 minutes. There is no stopping the cough unless I want to choke on the mucus. The excessive mucus affects my voice as well and is really annoying and extremely embarrassing. Everyone always thinks I have some kind of horrible cold if I eat around them, which makes me not want to.
Avatar f tn I'm a 17 year old girl who is healthy, apart from catching the common cold every now and then. I have a touch of asthma but nothing too serious. I have just recently recovered from a sore throat and cough which my doctor just passed as a viral infection. Now I have just been left with a chesty cough which is what usually happens after a cold.
Avatar m tn I had no white spots no yellow spots in my throat. Just extremely red and swollen in my throat. I had the sore throat and general malaise for a couple days. I thought I was getting better, but then nasal congestion came, stuffy nose, runny nose. Then came a really bad cough that would wake me up in the night. It would be a tickle that would trigger it. I had green thick sticky mucus. Then about a couple of days ago, I had that tickle cough, but like a coughing attack episode.
Avatar f tn I still have this lil cough going on. No sore throat, fever and I don't feel sick. I am coughing yellow phlegm smh. My chest feels a lil tight and I been taking my asthma meds like crazy. The back of my throat itches a lil bit, plus my ears feel a lil itchy; this cannot be allergies its dec 2010.. I cannot wait to take my 6wk test and 1 @ 12wks.
Avatar n tn This happened to me a couple of times blackout cough it starts with a very dry throat feeling than occurs . I bought a chloraseptic sore throat spray at the pharmacy over the counter it helps numb the throat and I use it at the first symptom of a choking spell and this has helped me .
Avatar n tn Starting with a generally dumpy feeling, I then began seeing excessive mucous being produced. The phlegm ran the gamut of colors from yellow to green to brown over the course of a week and a half. During this week +, I had that "dumpy" feeling and developed a cough (particularly bad at night) trying to expel all the mucous. There was no sore throat at all and I didn't seem to be feverish.
Avatar m tn After 1 week, I lost my voice for 3 days, then it somewhat came back but I've gotten a really bad headache which I need medications so I can comprehend with the headache. The fever is still here and my throat has gone really sore again and my coughing is really bad, sometimes I cough up orange/dark yellow phlegm and it gives a really bad taste. To top it off its so bad at night, I need sleeping pills to calm down and actually sleep. My doctor said it will go away in a few days.
Avatar m tn COULD BE that he finally got rid of some burr-and-whatnots by throwing it all up, and could be the burrs had made his lower throat and tummy very sore, so that's why he coughed so much after that happened. I mean, why else would he have stopped coughing. But then there's another possibility. A few days ago, when I noticed he was off his food, leaving about half what we gave him twice daily, I decided to give him milk mixed with honey and poured it in his dish. He kept coughing.
Avatar n tn But I am still having problems. Starts with a tickle like a pin *****, then like a crumb in my throat and the coughing starts to the point where I can only get a small breath in thru my nose.The tears, snot,red face and sometimes throw up. It feels like a spasm in my throat. Temp changes, quick breaths like if you get startled, deep breaths, smells, food and salt, even if my hair tickles my face,you name it. DH thinks it's all in my head, nope it is all in my throat.
Avatar n tn I am just getting over a throat and ear infection. I tilted my head to the side while reading last night and flourescent yellow fluid started flowing out of my nose and down my throat. It didn't smell, but tasted salty. On white tissue it looked like a leaky highlighter pen. This morning I popped over to see a doctor in the ENT department. I had a quick check over and he said I had signs of fluid inside my left ear (like glue ear). I think it is due to an infection.
Avatar f tn I go through sore throat, then sinus congestion, then it always turns into a cough that never leaves usually lasting 3-4 months. Weirdest but best thing at night is to slather my feet with Vicks and then put cotton socks on - I sleep the whole night without coughing. During the day I have to sip hot tea all day in order for some relief but I still have hacking sessions that are unavoidable. :(. If anyone else has found remedies that work for your cough, please share!
Avatar f tn I hardly slept last night and this morning have very bad dry mouth and throat, worse feeling of phlegm and feels like something stuck in my throat. I can hardly swallow and water does nothing. Every ENT dic just wants to treat me for GERD, which makes absolutely no difference. There is something in or around my nasal /sinus area. Above the back of my soft palate. I can feel it. Keep pointing that area out and they scope me and don't see anything.
Avatar n tn I have been sick and have had the worst sore throat. I got better with all the other symptoms but my sore throat kept getting worse. Today I looked closely at the back of my throat and saw a white thing. I touched it and it came out. I slid my finger down the spot and several more came out. They were disgusting and smelly and I have been freaked out all day. I'm glad I found this site to calm me down. I thought I was some sort of freak and the only one. Lol.
Avatar n tn I dont suffer from any sinus problems and i dont generally get a sore throat or produce alot of phlegm. It really annoys me and i would love to know how to prevent them.
Avatar n tn The cold has since subsided, hardly coughing any more, barely blowing my nose and when I do bring up phlegm its a pale yellow now. However, my sore throat still persists and I STILL do not have my voice back. I am a female who sounds like a dude going through puberty. I HATE IT and I AM SICK of it. What can I do? I have gone to my doctor twice already for the cold and it is NOT strep.
Avatar n tn It is quite embarrassing but most of all uncomfortable. I usually have a sore throat at some point in the day and usually it goes away and may reappear. The worst thing though is the forever feeling of a scratchy throat. Doctors don't want to listen to you though. They just want to push the steriod nasal sprays and prescription antihistamines on you. Tussionex is the only thing that has worked for me.
Avatar m tn I thought i had a sore throat and then realized i couldnt have a sore throat if only one side of my throat was hurting and it is the right side. Its been going on for a week now but i havent took it serious because im thinking it will go away but i feel like there is something there on my right side because when i swallow it hurts. Maybe it could be my right tonsil but i dont know because my left side doesnt hurt at all.
Avatar f tn They gave me prednisone, which I had side effects of tingly numb feeling arms legs and face so I stopped that. Next day I wake up coughing up phlegm. Not just coughing slightly, but full blown gag cough fits that end with me throwing up. I finally get to an allergist two day's later, thank you weekends. He told me he thinks I have a virus but didnt say which.
Avatar f tn follwed by 2 days of sore throat and now cough 1st day of had green phlem 2nd day yellow green...when coughing my chest felt burning and achiness then subsided until next cough.
