Question:

Hey, im 16, and my little sister reciently got a cold and i caught it only thing is it only lasted her 2-3 days iv had it for 3 weeks now, the last few weeks its mostly taken a toll on my trout and massive headaches.

so i took a mini mirior and shinned a light down my throut and i could see white and red bumbs then my throt started feeling like it was swelling up. so i just thought "STREP"

now i have bad anxiety so i guess i over react on some stuff and it takes alot of corrage for me to go from my house to the doctors so before i think it would be something very important i would like a expert to tell me what it might be.

last two days i woke up completely not being able to breathe out of my nose, so i went and i tryed sucking back with my tounge and i took out two balls of flem and then could breathe fine for the rest of the day but i was thinking wierd flem in my nose but each time there was a ball of blood in the middle like dark dark red and then i would get massive headaches with in seconds and the left side of my face is in massive pain.

please could someone help tell me what this might be.

thanks.

Answer:

You most likely had a cold initially, but this has developed now into a bacterial sinus infection.  You should go to your doctor who will then give you an antibiotic, and it should clear up fine.
