Coughing dark green phlegm, dry cough. Had mold exposure. Is that the reason?

I have been coughing up very thick dark green, yellow and occasionally a milky white phlegm ( I've never coughed up white so I'm scared) this has been going on approximately 2 weeks and its uncontrollable, the passed 2 days I've been coughing dry. I'm affected alot in my sleep as well. For the first week I felt very under the weather. I work on an oil rig with mold issues, I smoke occasionally, I'm 27 yrs old and in good physical shape. Please help thank you

You should start off by getting a chest x-ray to see if your lungs are clear. If you have any fevers or chills you should see your GP. It may be an allergic bronchitis or something along those lines.
