Post Phlegm - January 20th 2009, 10:08 PM

Lately I've been coughing up alot of phlegm and swallowing it because it doesn't come up far enough in my mouth for me to spit it out.

A few times i've nearly choked on the phlegm and im getting worried that it might get worse and I might not be able to breathe.

So is it possible to choke on phlegm? Also is there any methods to get it out?

When I feel I have phlegm, I cough it up as far as I can go, the put my head down towards the floor & cough some more.. Try looking down next time you feel you have phlegm.

It may just be a cold of some sort, how long's it been going on for? If you're that worried you can see a docotor but I don't think it's anything serious.

You were the angel of my life, taught me to be free
Now I'm a stranger in your eyes.
