Dark green or black phlegm from throat, coughing up plaque particles. Symptoms of pharyngitis and tonsils?

Hi, I am suffering from a prolonged throat problem. I smoke and feel like clearing my throat all day. When the smoking is high the phelgm colour is dark green or black otherwise clear. I recently coughed up tooth plaque kind of small particles. I am seeing a doctor who analyzes it as pharyngitis and tonsils together. I am really worried. Please let me know if you need any other details.

When you cough out the phlegm in the colour green or black it suggest your body is trying to expell the tars or resins built up from smoking so try to avoid smoking to be on the safer side consult pulmologist for further evaluation and to prevent further complications due to smoking. Learn yoga to improve the lung capacity and for the good blood circulation to the lungs. Add garlic in your diet regularly which acts as a natural expectant.
Hope this answers your query.
Take care.
