Patient :For the past two and a half days I have had a tickle in my throat which feels as if I have phlegm that is never ending in my throat. I have also been extremely fatigued and have chronic headaches. This morning in the shower I tried to spit up what was in my throat like I had been doing for the past few days, and I threw up a little after gagging to get it out. It was a mixture of milky green and clear/white. Then I went to work and was zoneing out nearly the entire night. My head was pounding and I couldn't help but stop spitting to try an get the phlegm out of my throat. When I finally got home at about 10, I went into the shower right away. I tried hocking it up again, but this time I threw up even more. And this was a mixture of orange and white. The orange was liquid, but the white was solid and a weird texture from what I saw. I have had a tonsil stone before, so I know it's not the same thing. The next day, I blew my nose hard and a reddish orange and yellow ball of snot came out. It was a little bigger than a quarter and the thickness of about three high when I later it down on the tissue. Since then, the Loogies I've been hocking up have turned that color and haven't stopped. This hasn't stopped after 4 days and I've never had this happen to me before. Does anyone know what this is?
