I am 53 male with a sever cough and extreme amount of phlim- clear. The cough is not a tickle in the throat but the need to expell the fluid. I have had a CAT scan, lung exrays, TB, stess test all results were good.Because of the cough my chest hurts (also had an EKG because of the pain.
It seems that my cough may be several hours apart and each time clear sticky flud comes up. One day last week my wife took me to ER because difficulty in breathing because of excessive amount of the fluid.
My lungs do not rattle until they are full .
