Spit up mucous: When you say you "spit up" do you mean that you spit out something coming from your throat or stomach or do you mean you cough up something and spit it out. Spitting out mucous can come from post nasal drip, mouth and throat or from stomach or from bronchial tubes or lungs. You have to discover cause and then look for cure. Do not smoke. May be something simple like a nasal allergy. See doc.
