Coughing up a hard grey white mass.
I'm coughing up a hard grey white mass. The size of the masses average the dimenssions of a green pea. They smelled like something rotting when I smashed it between my fingers to inspect it.
When I'm lying down I will feel it emerge somehow in the back of my throat and I will cough it up. I can feel the mass in the back of my throat and will cough to get it out. Or I will bend over by the toilet, cough, and it will come out more easily. I kind of have to work it out. It feels like something is stuck in the back of my throat.
I'm not sure if I noticed blood in one of the masses the other night or if it was pasta sauce from dinner. Now my throat is just irritated from coughing. I only cough however when I feel it and am trying to cough it up.
I am 21 years old and I do not smoke or do drugs. I am not on any prescriptions. This has never happened before and has been going on for a couple weeks now.
