[More] blured vision, light sensitivity, anxiety, shortness breath, pulpitations, fatigue, brain fog, dizzy/falling out feeling. PT suspected it was 90% VN & 10% migrane assoc. Been given VRT to do at home. Clean MRI done on 04/07/08 on the head and iams area. ENG test performed showed normal behaviours. Often cough with some flem/blood at least once a day, (believe the blood/flem is coming from the nose). Since then I occasionally feel like fainting at random.

Read post re:spitting out... You're not nuts, had similar experiences and wanted to tell you. I'd get miserable for no apparent reason, feeling there was a nasty "something" in my throat. I'd cough and hack until finally a "something" would come out just like you described.. either white w/bloody streaks or looking like piece of meat!
I lived with it for years, finally was having constant upper respiratory infections, went to ENT surgeon. Only had to look, told me tonsullar crypts (sounds horrible) only "cure" take them out surgically (like tonsillectomy in reverse).
Larger than thought, surgery/recovery TOUGH but never had feeling again, cough "normal" goo like others. Bad tonsillitis every year as teenager, always too sick to have them out... Thus crypts. Hope helps! SBF
