Question mucus deep in lungs, not really coughing

So about three weeks ago I was bed-ridden sick. I was coughing constantly and my lungs were really congested. Most of that has cleared up, the cough is gone, but sometimes when I exhale hard or laugh, I feel that mucus is still in my lungs and I can't really cough it up, and I'm not really having the reflex to cough either. So I'm kind of concerned.

Re: mucus deep in lungs, not really coughing

Try an expectorant cough syrup and mucinex. They will help move it.
