Is it normal to have phlegm in your chest after a cold or a flu? Mine sometimes makes me spit it out. And sometimes feel can't take deep breath
PRODUCTIVE COUGH: Yes it is normal. Upper respiratory infections produce inflammation of the breathing passages making it difficult for the lungs to clear mucus. The body's response is to cough in an attempt to get rid of the phlegm. Keep hydrated and monitor your symptoms. If they do not improve in the next few days, touch base with your doctor for further advice. ...Read more
My lungs feel heavy when breathing but no shortness of breath also i have dry cough. is this a normal sickness or should i be worried?
Have a slight cough for quite som time. Wouldn't worry except i keep getting a bad test in my mouth after non-prod cough. This usually happens with colds or bronchitis, which i don't have. Any idea?
Possible reflux: One possibility is atypical or "silent" reflux. I know this may sound strange but if stomach juice comes up it can reach the voice box region leading to cough. If even a little stomach juice reaches the mouth it can be very bitter or lead to a bad taste. Stop drinking acids. No sodas, coffee, tea. Stay away from tomatoes and sauce. Don't eat or drink for 3 hours before bed. See your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have recurrent tonsillitis, when I come down with it I also get a lot of mucus on my chest and cold symptoms. Is this normal? Tonsillectomy needed?
Not yet: Recurrent sore throat is not necessarily recurrent bacterial tonsillitis. This needs to be documented by positive streptococcus on throat culture at least 3 times in a year that did not respond to appropriate antibiotic therapy. Also, chronically large obstructing tonsils can be an added reason for tonsillectomy. The chest cold symptoms may be from postnasal viral drainage. Hope that helps. ...Read more
