Coughing up Mucus


Hi everyone,

Didnt know where to put this thread lol.. but anyway

For the last few months I have been coughing up mucus everyday. I dont feel ill whatsoever, I feel very healthy. I have a great diet and I exercise most days with martial arts or weights.

I would like to think that all the mucus coming out is my diet cleansing my body. What do you think?



Go to the doctor.

For a couple months I had been blowing my nose and getting a lot of bloody snot. I didn't think anything of it because it was winter. Come to find out I had a sinus infection.


Yes. Mucus is a physical manifestation of bad karma.

I think Thibs wrote an article on that.


It might be allergies, I know mine are acting up during this time of the year.

Ask your doctor though, its the only way to be safe- As thrasher stated how it might be something more serious.


I'm sorry but you caught the ghey...


Hows that possible?


I say doctor, especially if the mucus is coming up from your chest and not your throat.


do you smoke? (tobacco or "other"?)


Nope, not at all. I have a very good diet with exercise.
