Coughed up mucous and a hair??? Where did it come from?
 
I have been having trouble swallowing and not sure if this is related. I have been taking priolsec and licorice to help with possible acid reflux. I was sitting at my desk this morning and a big ball of thick mucous came up and it had a hair in it. I know the lung has hairs, cilia, but I heard those are pretty small. This one looks like an eyelash size hair..any idea where that could have come from?
Should I be concerned?
