This is Dr. David
where are you producing this mucus?
are you coughing this cough?
have you tried allergy medications and steroid inhalers?
you need to see a doctor.
if you don't like your GP you should find another GP doctor.
you need your iron levels checked
and thyroid hormone levels checked.
you need your estrogen levels checked.
you could be going into early menopause.
or have problems with your ovaries or pituitary hormones.
hello there ..I produce it from my mouth and I hack it up from my stomach , but it seems to store in my tummy which becomes very bloated, also my neck chin ,tops of arms, back of neck fill with this liquid..i can literally go up a size or two in clothes if I don't get it up..the mucus is clear and oudorless and is very similar to the mucus produced from the throat and nose, when you cry excessively..it is very gluey..i know this all sounds totally bizarre, but it is the absolute truth..
this could be due to severe allergies
you might need to go on allergy medications and steroid nasal sprays to decrease the mucus.
you might need a steroid inhaler to decrease mucus production from the lungs.
but you have to see a doctor to get these prescriptions.
we can't give out prescriptions online.
sometimes I can bring up several pints of this mucus, and I am in the bathroom for hours..which is extremely embarrassing and has become totally debilitating ..oh and I should say it definitely does not appear to come from my lungs..but from my stomach. And I don't cough it up so much as agitate it from the back of my throat as if you were going to spit..
I am an abstaining alcoholic of over 10 years also..
you could be producing too much stomach acid from your stomach
you need to see a GI specialist.
there are medications which can help decrease stomach secretions
and help decrease stomach acid.
have you taken stomach acid blockers before?
like nexium or protonix?
are you wiling to find another GP doctor?
what other questions do you have for me?
no I haven't ever tried those medicines..and yes I know I will have to seek out a different doctor..
have you ever heard of this before..i feel like a completely isolated with this..and as I say it is so humiliating hacking and spitting pints of this 'gunge' everyday..have I done this to myself from years of alcohol abuse??..that is another factor of not wanting to see my GP, as I feel its my own doing..but my life has just come to a grinding halt..i don't see any of my friends or family..i haven't even had any babies..
yeas of alcohol use can cause irritation of your stomach
and this can cause excessive mucus production and acid production.
there are medications like scopolamine patches which can help dry up your stomach and throat area.
you have stopped alcohol.
you have to see a doctor.
to get treatments.
you have to get this condition treated and you will feel better
and you should see a GI specialist as well.
do you have any other questions?
