Default What does neon green phlegm mean?

I am trying to avoid the drs. But I think I might need to go. I am coughing up bright green phlegm, fever, vomit, severe headache, stuffed up/runny nose.

My body doesn't hurt, so I don't think it's the flu.
My body doesn't handle fevers well and I think that's why I'm puking.

My chest hurts and it's tight and burns when I cough.

Think I need to go in? Or can it wait till Monday?

Thanks in advance.

Green phlem means there is an infection...and you are contagious. If you don't go to a Dr this weekend, sit with a humidifier or take a hot bath/shower to break up the phlem. Drink LOTS of water to keep hydrated (even if you'll throw it up) and consider some Tylenol cold & sinus.

That doesn't sound good at all. Last time I went in with chest and breathing pains like that, they told me it's cause for worry when it's green or grey. Go in. Right away.

Definitely means an infection....one of the only reasons I personally would even see a doctor (I hate them!). You must take an antibiotic. It honestly sounds like the infection is working its way around your whole respiratory system and that's not good. Go to urgent care if you can but see someone today. You are a mom and therefor must take as good care of yourself as you would your children and I have a feeling you would already be there if it were one of your dds. Just go and get it over with.

Try not to take cold medicines if you can - they dry up your mucouse and some could get caught in your lungs giving you bronchitis - best if you can deal with it to cough it up and get it out. Humidifier and warm shower are good and drinking LOTS of fluids.

I went up there. I left though, they told me it would be at least five hours before I was seen. I'll just go to the DR on Monday. Here's to another few days of this crap!

I can't blame you for leaving Sorry. Warm shower to break up the phlegm and help your throat with the coughing...and drink lots of water!!
~~~~~~~
BTW, I tried to rep you a hug, but I have to spread it around first.

I am sorry your sick. That's definitely a sign of infection. Did you go to the ER? I would have suggested an Urgent care place. We can usually get right in. In the meantime, lots of fluids, motrin for the fever and some sinus meds would probably give you some relief. Mint tea's are usually easier for me to keep down on a icky tummy so you might want to try it too. ((hugs))

Thanks ladies. I just sent DH to the store to see if they have mint tea. I'm willing to try just about anything right now (other then DHs suggestion/OFFER). I'm drinking down the colloidal silver, taking tylenol for fever and excedrine for the headaches.
