I have had discharge coming out of my eye socket (I have a prosthetic eye) for 3 weeks. The discharge is a greeny yellow.

about two weeks ago I started coughing

about 5 or 6 days ago I started coughing up yellow green phlegm.

I have been having trouble breathing for about a month, waking up some mornings and being unable to breath, I had to VIOLENTLY cough and gasp for about 3 or 4 minutes.

anyone have any clue what is happening?

  • Sounds like you had a sinus infection that has now moved to your lungs and turned into bronchitis. You need antibiotics before it turns into pneumonia, if it hasn't already. It is very important to go see a doctor at this point, as pneumonia can be fatal if left untreated.Be sure to drink plenty of fluids, get lots of rest, take some echinacea and vitamin C. I hope you feel better!
