Wink Re: coughing up black stuff

Hi hi! Still haven't gotten the results from the biopsy yet. bronchitis?? at first that's what i thought it might be. But i know what you mean when you say that you think it's something worse. I do that too. best wishes.

Re: coughing up black stuff

I finished the zithromax last week and im back to coughin up some black stuff. i have a little difficulty catchin my breathe sometime it seems. as far as my back goes i have had a little lower back pains for sure. ive been looking into getting a massage actually because thats about how it feels just like my back and shoulders are real tense, or tight. does that help at all? it could be from coughing maybe a lot? keep in touch, feel better again!

Talking Re: coughing up black stuff

hello everyone. The problem is that i have bacteria growing in my lungs which is REALLY rare. but at least it's not something really serious, although it still may turn into something and make me very ill. Thank you all for the support. I'm now on antibiotics. thanks again.

Re: coughing up black stuff

I too began coughing up black globs about 4 months ago. I think (hopefully)that it is just tar, as I began smoking again 2 1/2 years ago. I am glad for you that it is not more serious.

Re: coughing up black stuff

hey angelofsin, My back pain has worsened and I was wondering what kind of treatment your gettin for the bacteria, is it just an antibiotic? are you seeing a specialist? jeeplover-do you experience any back pain?
thanks!

Re: coughing up black stuff

Hey, actually, I have 3 disc bulges, T3-T4,T4-T5 and T5-T6. but i got antibiotics for my black phlem, and I'm still coughing it up, so I go to the doctor later this week, and have a follow up on it. But for everyone that is coughing it up, you may have the same problem, or it may be something more serious. You want to get checked for TB, and bronchitis. (not to scare you) ---and as far as my back goes, I went through therapy, and now I may need surgery.... I'm reeeeeeeaaaallllly scared. but get to a doctor as soon as possible, for your back and the black stuff. Sadlt, I'm begginning to worry that this may be something "new" and we're all getting it. even my doctors are confused about it.

Re: coughing up black stuff

Can i make it clear that im not bragging nor am i proud of the following,

I'm a 19yo Male, not very active, and im quite a big build, for the past 12 months i have been smoking marajuana, about 5 to 10 joints a week, and maybe snort a couple bags of something along the way, im not proud of it at all spose you can call me a waster but im trying to turn my life around, i made an attempt to give it all up about 2 months ago and failed misserably with a really bad cough to the extent i could not laugh and it caused seriously bad headaches and made me throw up but i never saught and medical advice for this, and so i continued to smoke and eventualy it started to feel better, i am now on attempt number 2 and it will be a week tommorow and this morning when i awoke i coughed up 2 small lumps of black something, which hadn't happened before, i was wandering on what your input might be, and if its worth getting it checked out?

id be very grateful for your help.
