A 35-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

had severe chest pains a couple months ago, was sick for 3 days a week ago and now very fatigued with no appetite and coughing up dark green thick mucus?

Another Look Needed: Though there are many things that this could be, I would be most concerned about either bronchitis or potentially pneumonia. The ongoing cough, "pleuritic" type chest discomfort, and thick sputum is worrisome for a lower respiratory tract infection. A closer look by a provider who can examine you and potentially order labs and chest imaging seems appropriate.
