Excessive mucus without cough

Posted by hishamhussain @hishamhussain, Dec 8, 2016

Dear kind community group
I am Hisham Hussain. 40 years
I have been suffering with excessive mucus coming from lungs with out coughing 3 months ago.
I find difficulty to expel continually accumulating phlegm coming from my lungs to throat
my case get worsen day by day and i feel recently short-breathing.
what make my case get worse is that i have not cough to help in expelling mucus out so it go to accumulate into lungs and airways.
I took montelukast and xyzal medicines for 2 weeks but i did not feel any better

have you found anything that helps ?

I want to say that I started to suffer with having excess of mucus 3 months ago and it last for 2 months WITHOUT anther any symptom. after that I began to find difficulty in breath and i feel that my lung could not do its function because of i feel mucus get accumulating in airways.
I do not have anther symptoms like fever or cold . just continually excess of mucus in which i find difficulty in throw it out and recently problem in breathing.
I did swab throat and it found diplococci and candida and also did x -ray for chest
I sent those tests to the doctor and give me medicine;azithromycine 500 mg antibiotic for 3 days and montelukast and levocetirizine.
I take these medicines for 2 weeks but I could not get better.

I want to add if it is safe to use Expectorant medicine like mucosolvan to help in expelling phlegm But i am afraid if this can give bad impact because i do not have coughing to push mucus out SO may using expectorant medicine would not be right choice in my case.

thanks for your kindness gentle people

Hello @hishamhussain, I can ONLY speak from my own experience .. but I also was diagnosed with asthma for years. I had many/various medication prescribed for many years. Misdiagnosed .. UNTIL my Pulmonologist had my sputum/mucus “cultured”. The cultures diagnosed that I had MAI/MAC .. MYCOBACTERIUM AVIUM Complex Pulmonary Disease. I absolutely cannot tell you that is what your issue is .. but you might request that your mucus be cultured JUST to rule it out .. PLUS if you have ANY type of bacterial infection the culturing can guarantee exactly what antibiotic will knock out that particular bacteria. Hope this helps just a little! Sending you a hug in this tough time! Katherine

You are so very welcome Hisham! We all care very much, and all of us know what it is like to have difficulty breathing. It can be so terrifying, and many people do not understand, no matter how much you tell them. It sounds like you have much work ahead of you, detective work! By this I mean perhaps making some changes in your diet and environment. Foods like dairy, sugars, sugary drinks, can really increase difficulties with mucus and also the body’s ability to keep the lungs strong! I eat lots of low-sugar foods and stay away from dairy! I drink many glasses of bottled Spring water a day, and lots of green tea. Eating raw organic apples, lots of organic spinach (raw or cooked), and lots of olive oil can really help with infections, good balance in the immune system, and lung health! It also helps to reduce white flour, sugar, and processed foods for very good alternatives. It’s worth it! You might also consider changing laundry detergents and cleaning supplies to more natural brands. These are small but long-term ways that lung health can really be improved. Please continue to keep us all posted on your health – so much of good health involves love and support from other people! Once you heal, you will help others heal as well! With Love and Healing, JMS : )

Your Dr would best know if you should use an expectorant, and it is good of you to be cautious and careful. This is very wise. There is a nice tea I really like for my lungs called “Breathe Deep” by Yogi Tea. I mention it because it is gentle, made for lung health, and supports healing. It is so wonderful and tastes so good, people without lung damage ask me for some when they visit, or when I carry some with me in a thermos say it smells so good what is it!!! Also, the warmth and the vapors from the essential oils in the herbs are very good for the respiratory system and nasal passages. I sometimes see it at Target, but always Whole Foods and some other big grocery stores. The ingredients are listed on the side and are pretty gentle – none should be an issue unless someone drank like 20 cups in one day! : )
Always good to check all the ingredients anyway. Greens tea has natural antibiotic properties and also natural caffeine, which opens up the airways a little bit. It also has antioxidants that help heal the lungs and keep you well in general. This is a small thing a person can do that is not expensive, but can make a difference in comfort and healing! We need strong lungs to live a good life! : )

It is my sincere pleasure! Yes try reducing dairy, cold foods, and sugary drinks or food from your diet, even by just a little bit and you may feel better because of it. You don’t have to do it all suddenly, but often, cold foods, sugary drinks, and dairy are very hard on the lungs because they all produce inflammation and make the lungs work harder! If you like spicy foods and your stomach is ok with it, cayenne, turmeric, cumin, curry, cinnamon, holy basil, ginger and other pungent “warming” spices really help the lungs stay strong and clear! You should of course always stay on your medicines, but sometimes changes in diet and environment help us heal so much! Take good care and cherish the day! : )

Correction – all those things don’t necessarily produce inflammation, but some do, and other cold items, especially cold dairy can produce mucous for many people! : )

Sometimes I do something very simple like drink hot water with some fresh lemon juice and honey. This is very wonderful for the lungs and throat. For me, it does help clear my lungs and keep them happy! The lungs have a better chance of getting rid of mucous when a person is well hydrated.
