Hi all. I wouldn't post here if I had not gotten to a very difficult place. I already have really bad health anxiety. Now I am dealing with something I have never dealt with before.
A month ago I was diagnosed with influenza A. It seemed mild. But then two weeks later I started to see little green chucks come out of nose. And I noticed a lot of congestion. I seem less plugged up during the day. But during the night I feel it the worst. It's especially bad in whichever nostril is facing down when I sleep on my side. And I get that constant feeling of a lump in throat like I need to swallow. And when I blow my nose, it's sometimes clear but I'll also get some green with occasionally a little blood in it. And the back of neck hurts. And overall I just feel lousy.
My main doctor prescribed Augmentin and I'm on day four. Doesn't seem to be making much difference.
Do any of these symptoms sound strange to you? Is it normal to still have green stuff coming out of your nose after almost three weeks? Does this sound like sinitus or could it be something else? Nasal cancer? Should I be worried?
I just think it's odd that my body would not have fought this virus off by now and now it seems the antibiotic is not working as well. Please help. Maybe it would help to hear others have experienced something similar?
