Symptoms of Bronchitis

The main sign of bronchitis is a cough that brings up yellowish-gray or green mucus (sputum). Mucus itself is normal. Your airways produce at least an ounce of normal secretions everyday. These secretions usually do not accumulate because they continuously cleared into the throat and swallowed with saliva. Mucus is usually clear or white. It is when your bronchial tubes become inflamed and when large amounts of discolored mucus comes up when you cough.

Other symptoms of bronchitis may include:
  • headache
  • generally feeling ill
  • chills
  • fever (usually mild)
  • shortness of breath
  • soreness and a feeling of tightness or burning sensation in the chest
  • wheezing (a whistling or hissing sound with breathing)
  • overall malaise and slight fever
It is also common that chronic sinusitis can cause mimic bronchitis. Chronic sinusitis is an ongoing infection in the lining of one or more of the cavities in the bone around your nose. This is because the signs and symptoms of chronic sinusitis include a thick, yellow or green discharge and a chronic cough that's triggered when you try to clear your throat of mucus draining from your sinuses.
