on May 21, just last month. I have had trouble sleeping, finding myself very restless with the need to be doing things. I was losing weight from a a healthy diet since the end of January but now find my weight loss efforts stalled and have actually seen my weight go up a couple of lbs.

I noticed in the last week that I've started to cough up dark black flem.

I just want to know; are all of these things normal and how long will the sleeplessness, weight and hacking the black loogies continue for?
