What does it mean i cough up yellow mucus every morning just mornings i dont feel sick?

Post nasal drip

Open-uri20130223-6598-1cu41wt
During the night, significant amounts of mucus can collect in the upper airway, back of the throat/nose. Upon awakening, the body's response is to expel this mucus to clear the airway. When mucus is exposed to air it is oxidized (turns yellow or green). If it stays discolored, think of infection, if it goes clear during day, think allergy. An allergist can assist in diagnosis and treatment.

Every morning i wake up and cough up grey mucus wit black splotches is this bad, it has been going on for atleast two years. ?

Not good

Cough
Need far more information and a detailed exam and possibly some imaging studies and exams of sputum. Do you smoke? Work around toxic materials you could inhale? Are you immunosuppressed? See a pulmonary doctor and get diagnosed and treated if necessary.

Why do I cough up mucus in the morning?

Allergies? Reflux?

Open-uri20120813-14358-ivmguc
A person who has a cough producing mucus (phlegm) should see a doctor. The doctor can evaluate to see if there are allergies, sinusitis, stomach reflux, asthma, bronchitis, or perhaps another problem in the chest. Problems can be more serious if the person is a smoker or has other health problems. Smoking is a major risk factor for several lung diseases, including cancer.

Early warning

Smoking_cessation_programs
This is your body reminding you that it is very unhappy with the fact that you are poisoning your lungs and the rest of your body with the products of smoking. The mucus contains some of the toxins, but many remain to attack your body. Perhaps this can motivate you at your young age to stop this before serious damage occurs.

I have minor headaches, sore throat, a slight fever, and I cough up this yellow/white thick mucus with spots of blood ONCE every morning.

Virus

Open-uri20140408-2912-28oayj
Viral upper respiratory infections usually start in the throat, spread to the nose and in some cases down to the windpipe and bronchial tubes. If symptoms last longer than 10 days or with fever, shaking chills, sweats or worsening cough, antibiotics and a check up for pneumonia are advisable. Until then a mild cough syrup and gargling with warm salt water is soothing. Tylenol for mild fever helps.

I'm 24 and have smoked for 10 years and have asthma, everday I cough up thick brown mucous, why?

Bronchitis

Cough
What you are describing is suspicious for chronic bronchitis. This destroys the hairs lining the airways which help keep the lungs clean. Damage from smoking causes mucus to build up, and without those hairs, it collects in the airways. The good news....much of this can be reversed if you quit smoking before permanent damage is done.

When i cough up mucous its brown but when it drains from the sinus its clear is that normal?

Bronchitis

Cough
If your nasal mucous is clear and the phlegm you cough up did colored then it means an infection or other issue is developing in your breathing tube (trachea) or lung. The sinuses are probably not jnfected

Pneumonia

Bronchitis
Sounds like what you have maybe worse than bronchitis. Please go to the ED to rule out pneumonia, especially if you also have fever.
