    No relief from mucus and phlegm since the past 4 months
    smoosabhai posted:

    I have been suffering from excessive secretion of mucus and phlegm since the past 4 months. Have changed doctors continuously but it seems no one can get a proper diagnosis. Someone says its allergies, some say it viral, some say it bronchitis, etc. I have taken mild to strongest antibiotics but none seem to help. Also got an xray done to test for pneumonia but that came out negative.

    I keep retching and throwing up every morning. My body gets really tired after throwing up. It seems I get well for a couple of days then I fall sick again for weeks at a stretch with fever, cough, cold, mucus and phlegm.

    I am really frustrated and now seem to be developing depression because of this. Can anyone help me or has any advice?
