mucous

at least 4-5 times a year i come cown with bronchial problems....i feel as if i am drowing in mucous, constant cough (day and night)... mainly to pop the mucous out of the bronchial tubes and esophagus feels as though someone stuck a wire brush in it. doctors usually put me on antibiotics and predesoine. i also take Prilosec. any suggestion since i am tired of being sick for about 6 months out of the year.
thank you

Hi i would have your mucus tested next time this happens, its simple just spit it in a bottle and let the GP send it off to find out, which if bacteria is causing this , just so you get the proper treatment for your problem.
Sounds like you have had a lot of antibiotics, over time which can become resistant , and the symptoms dont go away.
Have you had a chest x- ray? with the persistant problems you are experiencing.
Make sure you take a good pro-biotic with the antibiotics, just to protect the gut also.
Hope this helps.

I have been having the same prob for two years , I was prescribed antibiotics every time it fared up ,they took tests of the sputum which showed a staph inf., which has gone from 3months apart to four weeks .recently i was sent for a camera up into the nostril and then down into the lungs . resuts where nothing major just your run of the mill infection . but they did notice one of my sinusis was blocked and infected , which could pos be why im getting all this mucus and really bad headahes . Im waiting to get app at th ENT . I was suprised as i had no bother with my sinuses. If it keeps happening i would push to get it investigated , as it makes life pretty uncomfortable.

I would really push to go and see the ENT guy, even though i saw a ENT specialist and he was as much use as a chocolate fireguard.
When you see the ENT guy explain this has been consistant for 2 years, and is getting you down, be persistant,
But some medical conditions can cause extra mucus, so after two years , you need to be pushing for some answers, or some alternatives to the cause of these nasty infections, with added mucus.
If you need anymore help just let me know.
I wih you the best, and go and see your GP for a referral to a good specialist
