    • I want to find a way that destroys the yellow phlegm that lives inside my throat

      every morning i would wake up with yellow phlegm producing in my throat..it's so annoying..i can barely talk!!!!!!!

      ..disgusting.. ...so hard to discharge...and when i do like i do it so hard that i can see spots of blood on the yellow phlegm.

      I have a similar problem and it has gone on since October! I had a bad case of Bronchitus back them. Instead of blood mine has almot black/gray streaks in it?

      I have tried Musinex been on two doses on antibiotics. I am wondering if it is some sinus issues. I can feel it coming down off the top of my throat. Mornings are the worst OR if I have any dairy product.

    • me too...it was after my bronchitus attack too

      how long did you go on mucinex for ? and did it work? i want to try that

      i'm on alanase now which is this nasal spray..i've been on it for 20 days but haven't seen any signs of improvement just yet

    • Does yours have gray streaks in it too? I have been really puzzled by this one. I don't smoke etc..

      I had Bronchitus back in October. They thought it was borderline walking phenmonia! It took a month to get over it yet I never did 100%

      They had be on two Z packs (Zithromax) which didn't work so then they had me take Prednisone (which is not fun) it helped but.... The Phlegm never left 100%. I don't know if this is a sinus issue or what. It's worst in the mornings. I can push my tongue on the top of my throat and force it out. Mine is yellow and sometimes white with this bizarre black/gray streaks. I go to the Dr. next week.

    • Opps Musinex, sorry I forgot. It really helps in the thick of the illness. I have been taking it now as a desperate attempt to be rid of the mucus once and for all.

    • Still have the yellow phlegm but very little cough. I exercised last night with little to no breathing problems and my wheezing has gone away completely. Does this sound like a sinus infection?

    • Man...i don't know !!..hmm

      does anyone know if my yellow phlegm is being reproduced each morning? or is it the same pile of junk that keeps on lingering inside my throat

      it's so annoying

      i want to get a tube and pull it down my throat and suck the yellow thing out, ............................i am about to have job interview tommorow morning and I WON"T BE ABLE TO TALK!!!>.seriously..........everytime i try to cough it out it just gets worse.........and i think it gives me bad breaths too!!!

    • Bell: I, too, have black/grey streaks in my sinus "stuff" I blow out. I've had it in the past & I just figured it must be mascara getting into the tear ducts. I asked an ENT Dr. about it once & he stated it would not be blood being as black as mine was (I took a sample to him to see!!!). I am presently going through a month long stint of bronchitis & this week it's been sinus. I still cough some, not near like it was however. I am now on Z-pak -take last one today. This is my 3rd antibiotic. I seem like I'm just coming down with it all over today. Headache, blowing out horrible yellowish & clear stuff & I sound like I'm all plugged up. I have been using Rhinocort, don't know if it helps or not. I'm just truly sick & tired of this stuff, can't seem to get over it. It goes on and on and on. This "bug" seems to be all over the U.S. I had a flu shot & have not been well since 3 weeks after getting it in November. Are we being invaded with "bugs" that eat up our antibiotics?? Any further comments on this stuff appreciated. :rolleyes:

    • Yes Bell, my Dr. agreed with me that it was mascara. It's weird, I use eye liner too, & I suppose it does get into the tear ducts and goes into the nose cavity somewhere until you blow??? So, why doesn't everyone who wears it have this stuff? Oh well, I'm so glad to hear you have similar circumstances with this dreaded stuff. My grown daughter was DX yesterday with strep throat & she's staying w/me until her apt. is ready to move into, a couple more weeks. Now my throat is scratchy. She still has her tonsils, I do not, but I don't think that matters re:getting strep. Today was my last pill of Zithromax, should it not keep working for a few days? Hope so, cause I'm really getting paranoid over this whole month deal!!!. By the way, I had a sinus xray 1/24/05, & nothing showed, so that goes to show you the black stuff we are seeing is make-up. :) whew

    • Wow, mine is coming up through my throat! I have had phlegm from hell since October. I spit it out in the Morning. Oh I hope it's not strep too, that is going around where I Live real bad. My kids have been sick constantly this year. I have gotten to the point I can't stand all the coughing! Zithromax is supposesd to keep working for 5 more days. I did the 3 day 500mg dose and the 5 day 200 mg dose. It always hurts my stomach but man that stuff is liquid gold I swear by it. Did you do a search on the black mucus OMG I did everything talked about Black Lung disease and smoking etc. was scaring me half to death. When will I learn not to surf for my symptoms on the Internet.

      Keep me posted, If you are on Zithromax I wouldn't worry about getting Strep.

      LMAO! No kidding. I swear I wasn't a hypochondriac until I started surfing for symptoms. Just last week, my son had a "clay" colored B.M. When I searched it everything came back - liver disease, gallbladder disease, etc. I took him to his ped only do discover there was nothing wrong with him. The culprit? The dye in his juice box. From now on all he'll get is "screamin' green" or "neon blue" at least then I'll know what the hell is going on! :D

    • Yes, I agree, too much surrfin is not good. I find things & then get all upset. However, the black stuff from the nose is a given, not anything serious, eventho I've blown a ton of black mucus for the past 3 weeks. It's not every blow, just sometime when I seem to blow from way up in my sinus cavity. Enough said, we know the reason for this, now let's concentrate on getting and staying well. This bug around is buggin me & I'm tired of it. I still sound like a nasal fool!!! It will get better. Good weekend to ya.
