This sounds like me during the worst of allergy season. Maybe sore throat, maybe not in the morning... headache, cough/retch up globs of yellow and brown clams. It may have the consistency of a giant cow booger, or a hunk of raw liver.The force turns your stomach over. Often he has bloody streaks in it.

It's sinus related.... crud drains while you sleep.Sorry about the graphic description....

Ok, so now ... who wants a kiss? LOL

'll admit I just speed read most of the posts, but my husband does that morning hacking thing, too. A couple of years ago he went to the doctor and they said it must be heartburn. It wasn't heartburn. We suspected possibly allergies and he's been taking Claritin for the last couple of weeks and it has helped tremendously.

Have you been tested for tuberculosis?

ive never had any allergy or sinus problems... even when pollen and the "allergy" season is at its highest It doesnt seem to effect me (no watery eyes, or runny nose, etc)... I cough up more of a watery substance...never blood or globs of stuff. But it does turn my stomach into a knot every morning.

Ive never been tested for tuberculosis... Is it possible to have it without all of the symptoms?? I was reading about it this afternoon and it sounds pretty nasty.

I do get heartburn after I eat though...ive been staying away from pastas, high sugars, no alcohol, no spicy, no tomatoes, no caffine, no pain relievers, etc.... sometimes it isnt too bad but othertimes its like the lay in the fetal position type.

Thanks for your suggestions...if anyone else has any ideas im open...
