I am waiting on results of a ct scan but saw my respiratory nurse last week and she said my shortness of breath is caused by mucus. Can someone please tell me what is the best way to get rid of it. Thank you all very much in advance 😊
I'm suffering with excess mucus but always getting croaky voice could this be my inhalers causing this ,it's worrying me a bit . Can you buy mucinex over the counter or do you have to get it off the doctor .
Trying to get the phlegm up so I can cough it out.
The symptoms that he has now are very noticeable. At times he breaths loudly. He is also complaining of pain in his back. Mucus is most times a problem. He coughs to attempt to get the mucus up. Sometimes he gets some to move and at other times he doesn't. I would like to know what may be happening. Is this another stage of COPD? Should he get in touch with his Pulmonary Specialist? Or what should we do? This is getting to the point that I'm worried about it.
Is there any way of making phlem thinner so it is easier to cough up
If anyone in the group has used Mucinex to help get sputum up please let me know your results and if it really is effective .How much and how often do you take it ?
I had it in the hospital in the neb and it did help some. I keep getting pneumonia and the mucus staying in the bottom of my lungs may be the reason so I need help getting rid of it . I am open to all suggestions . Thanks to all and breathe easy .
I dnt have one on my nebulizer --do you find it helps clean your lungs? Mine is the mask-- I don't feel as if it cleans my lungs
Every night or morning I wake up and cannot clear my lungs for about an hour. It is getting worse and really struggle to breathe until I can eventually cough up the gunk. I find hot cups of tea help loosen it but its hard work making them. Does anyone have any other suggestion to make this process easier. I have nearly called an ambulance about 4 times in last fortnight. It's getting to the point were I am scared to go to sleep. I also wake up covered in sweat and boiling hot. Please… read more
This has happened a few times and is so scary. Upon arising a tiny bit of phlegm is blocking windpipe and can't breathe- Need to cough it out- Tried a sip of water and rescue inhaler- Any other suggestions that I could prepare night before- just in case?
