Been coughing up yellow phlegm for so long now. Anyone else have this problem?

I spent years drowning in mucus. It mysteriously went away when I was taking reflux meds and did not return much after stopping those meds. I also stopped having regular periods just before I started those reflux meds.

I suspect hormones has something to do with it, because even now (2.5 years later), I get stuffy nose and increased mucus when I have menstrual cycles. I have no scientific explanation for this (or many other inexplicable things that happen/have happened to me).

Allergies, mold exposure, silent reflux can all cause mucus. I believe hormone imbalance can, too. I just remembered I've read of pregnant women having non-allergic rhinitis. I just googled it, and voila, I was right.

If you are a woman and you are perimenopausal (or getting closer) or have hormone imbalance, then hormones may be why.

I had sinus problems in my teens and twenties, but it was after I got into my thirties and forties that the nasal stuffiness was maddening and I was literally drowning in mucus.

NAC can help with mucus.



N-acetyl L-Cysteine

When herbs are working especially those that target mycoplasma (it's favorite place is the lungs) I get phlegm build where I have to cough, not because I "have to cough" but because I need to clear my throat. And I have to do this like 25 times a day.

Just one good clean cough. Clears it up and then 30 mins later I have to do it all over again.

What a coincidence I just order some like 2 hours ago.

It's supposed to be very protective of the cilia in the lungs.
