Why am I coughing up phlem from my lungs and wheezing?

Posted by Thao

I have been coughing for the pass 4 months now.  My phlem in the morning is brown and the more I spit up the color becomes yellow and then clear.  I'm wheezing.  Sometimes I'll breathe and it'll sound like I'm snoring or a light humming noise.  At times it can be so bad it won't help wither I'm upright or laying down and it can keep me up at night.  It happends any time of day.  It can sometimes skip a day or two and come back. I'm not short of breathe or have any chest pains, but at times my chest can feel a bit heavy until I spit out the phlem.  I've tried all types of cough medicines as well as Munciex, but nothting has helped. I'd like to have an idea of what type of lung infection I may have and is it serious and how I go about getting rid of it.

uhh.. go to a fuckin doctor. It's very clear you have an upper respitory infection. The brown phlem, wheezing, and coughing are all signs of acute bronchitis, which can lead to pheamonia, which left untreated, leads to death. yeah.. go to a fuckin doctor... you idiot. you should have been there 3 1/2 months ago.
