Okay so it started almost half a week ago I'd say.. I wasn't feeling sick at all, but for some reason I just started coughing up a lot of phlegm.. clearish to yellow colored. I don't smoke cigarettes, only on the occassional weekend. I do smoke pot.
Anyways I thought the phelgm coughing up mighta been caused by some resin I was smoking, but they said that was black phlegm, not clearish yellow...
So a few days pass of coughing up phlegm, and now I'm sitting here.. irritated... i had the chills last night, I woke up several times.. coughing and sweating just about everytime. My throat is killing me.. I don't cough up phlegm as often, its more of a dry cough now with some phlegm every now and then. I'm coughing every 5 minutes at least it seems and it just feels like my throat is being ripped apart. I decided I'd quit smoking pot until this passes, as I was doing so the other night and it just hurt really bad too.
Anyways any advice? Do I just have a sore throat that needs to pass? I'm thinking of picking up some throat spray today... I tried all the other remedies.. cough drops, salt water gargling, and so on. I still don't really feel all that sick besides being really hot right now and having severe throat pain.
Been going on for a few days now.. it seems like coughing up phlegm has given me a sore throat.. but what about the chills and sweating?
