I am wondering if anyone has the same problem as myself. I am bringing up a lot of phlem it is clear but thick at times and I get very breathless. It is really getting me down, as even when I drink or eat it comes up in mouthfulls. Some days it almost constant and at night I have to sleep elevated as it feels as if it is laying on my lungs. I recently had to go into the ER as I could not get my breath. The doctor said that my oxygen levels were fine and he thinks that it is acid reflux that is causing this phlem. He has referred me to see a Gastroendrologist that deals with acid reflux to see if she can find out where this think phlem is coming from. I also suffer from a Hiatus Hernia and I do not know if this is aggravating it. I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me, as it is making me feel very depressed.

I was diagnosed with COPD last year but I just found out that I'm in the later stages. I quit my job so that I could get disability. Now I have no money and have to be on oxygen for properly for the rest of my life. I smoked for 41-years and now I'm paying the price.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
