Coughing always with thick mucous and the lungs stiff?

Lots of possibilitie

Chest-lung
Asthma comes to mind, but many other possibilities. A doc needs to listen to your heart and lungs and consider chest x-ray and lung function tests.

Dr. Sue Ferranti answered:

With chronic bronchitis or COPD, what is the color & texture is the mucous or secretions from the lungs ?

All different...

Sputum can have many colors and still be ok. The color that is most worrisome is red; this always needs to be evaluated by your doctor. Otherwise, if your sputum changes in color and consistency you need to be seen by your doctor.

5 yr old daughter has hives on face and lots of mucous in lungs just on the walk to school, what could it be?

Allergy?

Hiv
Hard to give a definitive answer by your description..."mucous in lungs" is horrible sounding(i presume you meant a phlegmy cough); and just from walking to school sounds like an environmental allergy. If this is not the case then i recommend a trip to your friendly neighborhood pediatrician for a thorough exam for your 5 year old.

I am experiencing wheezing, rattling in lungs, coughing up brown and bloody mucous. What is best OTC treatment?

See your doctor

These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you.

Its 4:52 am im in san antonio tx and i am having trouble breathing my lungs are squeaky maybe bronchitis? Hurts my chest to cough up the mucous? ??

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.

Lungs: I've been drinking herbal respiratory tea (thyme, eucalyptus) noticed some of the mucous that carries out debris changed to a bright white?

consider candida

Respiratory
When mucous is white one consideration is yeast over growth. Thyme oil is good against yeast but it may be necesssary to avoid dairy, wheat, and sugar as well. Avoid benadryl which is drying. Read about high histamine in food and consider using non corn based vitamin C to lower histamine.

Is there a suction device that drs or patient having bronciectasis alongside atelectasis can use to suck mucous out of lungs esp if its in lower lobe?

Postural drainage!

Lungs
Good morning, Mucus in the lungs indicates an ongoing infection or inflammation of the airway and lung tissues. Structural changes associated with bronchiectasis lead to pool of mucus. Getting rid of the mucus makes the patients feel better. Use of nebulizers which can deliver moisture into the airway help to dilute the mucus and facilitate the drainage. Respiratory therapists can help you.

For 2 1/2 weeks had sinusitis and bronchitis. Finished z pack. Saw PCP wed and was told my lungs were clear. Still bringing up mucous, though clear. Today chest feels tight and I have mild pain in heart area when taking deep breath. I do have mild asthma.

Hard to say

Sinus_infections
If wheezing and short of breath - maybe, but you should be seen by your doctor for another evaluation ASAP. BTW, Z-pack is great for bronchitis but worthless for sinusitis however, since 98% of all sinusitis is viral related, it probably makes no difference for your recovery time.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

Is there any fruit or food that can reduce production of mucus in lungs or any food which helps to remove mucus from lung?

Food not a factor

Chest-lung
Foods are not a factor in production of mucus in the lungs nor do foods help in removing it. Steam inhalation may help loosen the mucus and make it easier to come out.
