Thick Greeny-Brown Phlegm

Hello doc,

  For the last two years I have been having health problems. It all started with a seasonal cough which brought up very thick green phlegm. The cough cleared up but the production of phlegm has not ceased. Especially but not limited to the mornings I clear my throat and I bring up very think and sticky greeny-brown phlegm, consistency would be twice as thick as wallpaper paste.

I have been a smoker but not for the last 9 months and I never had a problem with phlegm before this cough two years ago. I have had numerous x-rays checking out my other symptoms mainly a tightening of the chest but so far we are coming up empty I have brought this up with my doctor but he said that

Having a CT of the sinuses is a good diea to see if this is the cause of the drainage.  This usually occurs during the night and early morning hours.
