I have been suffering from a high level of mucus in the windpipe, for the last 2 and a half years.
Doctors have diagnosed it variously as;
1- The lower parts of the lungs were damaged, and the puss oozed by the lungs was the mucus. I was put on an assortment of medicines and anti-biotics, fo a while I noticed some improvement but things returned back to their previous levels once the medicine stopped.
2- Then I told by another doctor that my lungs were fine (the C Scan and X rays showed clear lungs), but that I had an allergy in the facial area. But again the medicines did not cure the problem.
3- Now another doctor tells me that I suffer from a high level of acidity, but again I have not seen any improvement from that treatment.
I used to smoke (but I do not believe I was a heavy smoker, as sometimes I did not smoke for 10 days, while on other days I would smoke 10 cigaretes in a day)
BUT I lived in an appartment where the central airconditioning ducts were disintegrated, and it emitted a fine dust of the A/C ducts which consisted of alluminum and insulation wool.
I do not know what to do. Doctors are not able to diagnose the problem.
The quanitity of mucus that is comming out is huge, at night it cause suffocation.
