Hello everyone, two days ago In the morning I had blood from my sinius in my nose and in my throat area (I think it drained down in the night).  Since then after postural drainage and when I cough the mucous has changed from big blobs of yellow to a greener colour.  Do I go straight to A + E or go to the doctors who will send me for mucous test, x-ray but it could take a week or so. Or am I over reacting and slight green mucous is ok - I would appreachiate your comments Ta (as we say in Wales) Samantha

    If you take a sample of your mucus with you your gp should send it of to hospital to get tested but while you wait for it to come back he should gave you antibiotics x
