«lung disease because of fluid exudation»

The chushor disease is one of eight lung diseases. In Tibetan Medicine it is considered that this condition arises from the exudation of fluid into the lungs after intense high physical exertion for an extended time.

It is described in Oral Instruction Tantra (the third part of Gyu Shi), Chapter 35 on Lung Disorders.

The symptoms are: sensation as if the upper body is bursting, headache, yellow eyes, loss of appetite, frequent coughing, shortness of breath, loss of weight and lack of sweating because of it, coughing during talking. With time, fluid accumulating in the lungs causes corrosion, pulmonary tissue decomposes and pieces like meat gruel appear in the sputum. It is as if the lungs are rotting from excessive moisture.
