throat

Avatar f tn mily physcians and 1 specialist, and antibiotcs and do not know what is causing this. Why am I constantly having a yellow and dark green mucus in my throat. Sometimes I get up dried green mucus (looks like wilted spinanch leaf.,yes that large.? I use to be on ADVAir for this under my old doctor to keep from having bronchitus. Now I have moved and here I am with this problem!!
Avatar n tn The sinuses were like that for a couple of days with a lot of yellow mucus. It took till about day 5 before the mucus started building up in my throat but up till now has been easy to clear (normally I get that crackling in my throat). Now the nose and throat is still a problem. I have about 3-4 hours from when I wake up that I have to keep clearing my throat before it stops. The sinuses are pretty bad, I have to clear them frequently yet they don't actually drip.
Avatar n tn However, I have been suffering a severely stuffy head (like living underwater), lots of mucus (going yellow to green), fatigue, coughing, sharp pain between the eyes ocasionally, and pressure/pain on my upper molars. It's persistent. Over the last 8 or so years, every year that I get the flu, it takes me MONTHS to finally shake the ear stuffiness, mucus and post nasal drip. This lastyear, it took nearly 6 months. My doc always advises against antibiotics, and says it's normal.
2218427 tn?1339495208 I was lying in bed just now when i felt a liquid stream out of my left nostril, i thought it was a nose bleed until i turned on the light and saw that it was a bright yellow color. Not very much came out but it was very watery unlike mucus. I have recently gotten over a viral throat infection that lasted about a week and a half and still am slightly congested from that. What could this liquid be? spinal fluid? or just strange mucus left over from the sickness? should i go to the ER?
Avatar f tn What started as a sore throat has affected my lungs, difficulty breathing,(mainly exhaling)(raspy sound in throat when exhaling) coughing up rust, white and yellow mucus. I start to feel better, and then bam it gets worse. now it feels like there is gross mucus trapped in my lungs, & i dont know how to get it out. Sometimes after i cough, the phlegm is so bad it makes me sick to my stomach. I dont want to go to Dr. to be told its just a virus.
Avatar m tn The answer would depend upon whether the cause of the excessive mucus in your throat or lungs is due to infection or allergy. Badly discolored mucus, green or yellow, would suggest infection. If it truly is coming from your lungs, you must have either acute bronchitis or pneumonia, either of which will probably require antibiotic therapy.
Avatar n tn I've had what i have considered a common cold for a week. I had the sniffles and everything. I've had some really bad head aches to the point where I could sniffle or blow my nose and it was just enflamed. My cheeks hurt and all around my nose. I blew my nose finally and the mucus was very thick and sticky. It had ranged from dark green to brownish because of blood I'm guessing. Then i blew my nose and this liquidy really bright yellow liquid came out.
Avatar f tn I suspect a lingering illness based on you being a smoker and recently having a sinus infection. Mucus can drip from your sinuses to your throat and cause all sorts of fun inflammation, and smoking would just irritate your throat further. Your lymph nodes are swollen because your body is trying to fight off whatever is wrong. Are you having any other symptoms of illness, like a fever, body aches, tiredness... ? Also, how is your BF doing?
Avatar n tn Have had chest congestion and mucus draining down my throat periodically for last couple of years. At some point I lose my voice as well. Is this an allergy? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/283754'>chronic sinus congestion, plugged ears, chest congestion, coughing</a>.
Avatar f tn Off and on I notice streaks of blood in the mucus in my throat. I have allergies and always have post nasal drip. The mucus is clear, not discolored so I don't think it's an infection. I don't smoke or drink. Can allergies cause blood in your mucus? I don't have the money to go to an ENT and my reg doctor told me he doesn't know. Oh, also, when I notice the blood, I haven't had a bloody nose or picked my nose or anything.
Avatar f tn I have the same symptons as MNG except herpes simplex and throat cancer. I have had bad allergies sinus infections W/post nasal drip, and a bad cold. I just have heavy mucus buildup where my nose meets my throat..When I cough it up , it hard to get it out. The mucus is really thick slimy and yellow w/small hint of blood. However, the blood onlycomes up if I sniff my nose really hard to get the yellow mucus up.. When I sniff softly, only the yellow mucus comes up.....pleez help me...
Avatar f tn A clear mucus discharge will usually indicate that there is no infection. If your mucus was yellow, green, thick and white, or even blood stained, it would mean that something was not right. Producing too much clear mucus can sometimes indicate a problem, depending where it is coming from and how much there is of it.
Avatar f tn Not sure what it is, but normally yellow mucus is infection, green mucus is "old" infection, and brown is usually old blood and mucus which can be cause from the infection itself. Normally a round of antibiotics should cure this. You could possibly need a stronger does of antibiotics to knock it out this time, make sure you take your meds as directed, and take ALL of your antibiotics, this is very important. Try drinking more water, this will thin the secretions.

Avatar m tn Hi there, Normally mucus is thin and colourless.Whenever there is any infection the color changes from colorless to yellow and then green. Drainage from swollen or infected sinuses may be thick or discolored. Whenever there is excess mucus it may run down the back of your throat causing a postnasal drip or cause a cough that is usually worse at night. A sore throat may also result from too much mucous drainage.
Avatar f tn Then I had a cold with so much sinus pressure that my nose felt broke. After the cold my top teeth hurt then yellow mucus. Okay then symptoms went to just a feeling pain in my throat. So I went to the doctor said sinius infection. Antibiotics and steroids did nothing. My current symptoms are sharp pain headaches on top and back of head. Full facial pain. Mucus in my throat. Blurred vision a little. Ears feel clogged. Nothing relives it. I have an appointment with the ent next week.

Avatar f tn Hello, Your symptoms are typical of pharyngitis or upper respiratory tract infection. It is due to pharygitis or sore throat which occurs sometimes in association with sinusitis. It usually occurs when viruses (or sometimes bacteria) from a cold, flu, or sinus infection involve the throat.
Avatar m tn Dear ZigoMan i am allergic to any kind of smoke. at present yellow mucus stopped but i am getting a lot of cough and because if which my throat is getting swollen. and if i sleep under fan or if i get exposed to cold air i am getting itching in side my lungs.
Avatar m tn And both docs told me if I ever got a cold and had yellow mucus to begin adding Betadine to the warm salt nosewashing water will prevent the cold from evolving into a sinus infection. In your case the rinsing will help your antibiotic work better. You want to rinse that nasty snot out of your nose. I have used Betadine in warm salt water to wash my nose using a neti pot several times to help clear up sinus infections. Do 4-5 nasal rinse a day when fighting a sinus infection.
Avatar m tn Approximately 12 days later I developed what I think was a sinus infection with stuffy nose, occasional sneezing, and spitting up yellow to dark yellow mucus from my throat, mostly in the mornings. After about 3 days of this my throat began to feel sore and my right tonsil became extremely sore. I thought I may have felt a couple lymph nodes on either side of my throat possibly swell. Amazingly through this I have not really developed a cough.
