can anyone please advise?
I caught a really bad cough and cold back in may '08. Since then I have developed a vast amount of phlegm and cannot seem to shift it.
I cough it up all the time but don't have a cough. It varies in colour all the time from being brown, green and clear. It isn't particularly worse at any time of day, it's constant. I can sometimes feel it on my chest if i take a deep breath and can feel a slight rattle on my chest which tells me i need to get rid of it. If I really laugh i develop a mild coughing fit and have to excuse myself to cough it up.
I have asked two of my doctors about this twice now and they dont seem to think i have a problem. They have checked my chest by stethascope and told me that it is clear. I have been a smoker for 15 years and never had any chest problems and the doctors never mentioned this as being a factor.
PLEASE CAN ANYONE HELP/ADVISE AS THIS ISN'T PARTICULARY PLEASANT- ESPECIALLY FOR A LADY
