Hi there I am a smoker about 2 packs a week. I developed a throat infection a couple of months back and was given antibiotics to treat it. I finished the course but the infection (in my mind) has not cleared completely.
My concern is however that every day since, i develop some kind of tissue gunk at the back of my throat. If I cough really hard it comes out in big yellowish strips/sheets usually there are two strips about the size of a paper clip and then one bigger sheet about the size of first joint of the index finger of a grown man with large hands. The bigger bits seem to have what looks like blood capilliaries attached.
It stays clear for about an hour and then starts building up again. I can cough out the same amount of this tissue every six hours or so.
First I would only be able to cough it up through my mouth but of recent days It seems that it is coming out of my nose. I also do seem to get quite a bit of Sinus pressure in the nasal cavity before I have to blow one of these chunks out and it usually alternates between nostrils.
The tissue (i call it that because I do not know what else to call it) grows rapidly over night and I usually have to wake up in the middle of the night to cough it out. Once all the bits are out I then get a bit of blood spotting that goes away with a gargle.
