Mucus Production

Mucus Production

Hi to all you brave and wonderful friends
Just wondering your thoughts on why I cough up so much mucus during the day but it seems to subside late afternoon and at night, As always thanks so much for your info and friendship.

I have the same problem. I spend two hrs after I get up coughing up mucus. I end up with stomach hurting. I was told I have stage 4 now. Never seen a pulmonary Dr. Now they are. It's been going on for two yrs. I'm now down to 79lb. Normal weight is 110. I push myself as much as I can. Now I'm really tired. I've been on oxygen along time. I have to have a Vivid on the 27th then go the 29th for Spirometry. Some times I just want to give up. Thank you for any suggestions. Have a nice evening.💘

Mucus doesn't tend to move while you sleep, but gathers, so many people spend a good part of their morning doing a variety of things designed to get the mucus up and out: mucinex, nebulized albuterol and saline solution, use of devices like acapella or aerobika, huff coughing, using various percussion techniques including percussion vests, postural drainage, just to name a few things people use.

Hi Quilts, I can't speak for all but as for me I found that it was in my diet, certain foods will really cause more mucus more often, I still have trouble but not like I use too. I eat more fish,shrimp blueberries, chicken I watch what veggies I eat and starchy foods like pastas no bread most of the time, I make open face as I call it, I put my food on my plate like I would a sandwich and use my fork.
I take mucenix twice a day and allergy meds.
