Excess mucus and other symptoms
Hi and hope you an comment
I have been constantly clearing my throat of phlegm for six Months, usually sticky clear / white. Mostly during the day and when I talk. It often calms down at night time with no excess in morning. I do not need to cough but I feel the need to bring up the mucus which can taste salty. I have noticed a small streak of red blood on a few occasions during the six Months. I sense a fruit smell, or sweet or musty smell in my nose and in the mucus. My skin seems to produce the same smell at times in the sweat.
In recent Months have had a few spells of fever / chills at night and fatigue. I have taken antibiotics which have not helped the mucus production but seem to have warded off fever, etc.
Sometimes I sense mucus in the trachea which seems to irritate airways. I saw ENT and they said it looked hypersensitive ( not sure what that means ). I have a CT scan due of throat and lungs in a few weeks time. I had two negative chest X-rays at Month 1 and Month 6.
Many blood tests have been negative.
I am also being investigated for chronic diareah and bowel issues and due colonoscopy next Month as sigmoidscope was clear. Not sure if there is a link with the lungs / throat.
I am 49 years old male, non smoker. Can you make sense I fear the worst case scenario but so far nothing
