About 3 weeks ago, I had developed a cold Took

Patient

Q: About 3 weeks ago, I had developed a cold... Took cold meds and it went away, a few days after, it got to the point where I'd be fine during the day, but in the middle of the night or in the morning when I would wake up, I'd have to cough up a thick yellow mucus. I kept taking cold pills, the mucus aspect as slowly gotten better but I am still coughing lots. It only seems to affect me when I am at home laying down. It's also gotten to the point where I feel like there is something stuck in my throat. Please help, I can't deal with this anymore.
