I've had a problem with phlegm for the past 2 years ever since i had a really bad cold, it makes me retch most mornings and although is horrible i've gotten used to it now. I cough it up into a tissue pretty much all day because i'm so scared of swallowing it because that makes me sick.
However, now i have bronchitus (although i'm feeling much better now), last night i was trying to cough up phlegm and there was alot, (sorry it's discusting), i couldn't get it up so i was trying to "suck" it out, it was coming from below though if that makes sense and not from my sinuses, it felt really horrible and i panicked loads, then i was sick.
It's happend last year when i had a really bad cold too, i'm really frightend now though and everytime i feel phlegm in my throat (which is pretty much constant) i have another panic attack.
Am i alone in this or has it happend to anyone else too?
Hoping for reassurence xxx
