Question Vomiting Mucus PLEASE HELP!

I was diagnosised with the influenza earlier last week,
but I've been getting a lot sick and now I am beginning
to think that it might be something more than just the
flu. For the past two days I've started vomiting up a
throw-up and mucus mixture. Is this normal? Do you
have any information that might help me get rid of it?
And any other things you can think of? My chest has
also started to feel heavy and my cough has become more productive. What's wrong with me?

Re: Vomiting Mucus PLEASE HELP!

Normal symptoms of the viral influenza I believe. The mucus you are coughing up contains much of the infection caught by the mucus (the mucus is doing its job properly) but you are then obviously swallowing this mucus and it mixes in you stomach. If you do not have a strong stomach after enough is swallowed it will be rejected hence the vomitting.

When you cough, as unpleasant as it may sound, try spitting out the mucus into the tiolet. As for the heavy chest and productive cough, the infection may have reached your lungs in which case you may have to get medical advice and medication.

Thanks for yall help.

But Token, it's like the mucus or phegm, whatever you wanna call it, gets caught in the back of my throat and sents off my gagging reflexes that's why I think I vomit sometimes not because I'm swolling it as much, but that also might be the case.

No Scared222 I do not have asthma
