Hi everyone, I haven't been on in a few years and i didn't know where else to turn. I was awakened by burning bright yellow mucsus, belchng, dry heaving etc. I have neevr thrown up not even once since before my surgery 5 yrs ago. Dr. Pupkova was my surgeon who has moved on, i called my PCP and no return call yet. Has anyone else experienced this? The burning was so bad. I am able sip water so far so good. I hate to go to the ER unless it is necessary so i was hoping one of you had some advice?
Mucus is yellow, when it contains inflammatory cells, mainly leukocytes. Thin yellow mucus can result from any cause of inflammation of respiratory tract: infection, allergy, asthma, irritation.
Thick yellow mucus speaks for infection – viral or bacterial. It is a regular symptom in acute orchronic bronchitis or bacterial pneumonia.
Green mucus contains pus (white blood cells mixed with bacteria) and suggests serious bacterial infection. It may be produced in chronic bronchitis, acute bacterial bronchitis, bacterial pneumonia, atelectasis, cystic fibrosis
