About a week ago, I got a pretty bad cold. It consisted of head pressure and a stuffy nose. When I blew my nose it was really yellowish green. Now, for about four days, I have had a sore throat. It veries in severity but at night it is worse. I also have a feeling of a ball of mucus in the back of my throat. When I attempt to clear nothing moves. The past few days I have had a taste of blood in the back of my throat. Now when I try to clear that feeling of having mucus in my throat I bring up a ball of dark blood, to which my throat becomes sorer after doing that. When I clear my throat after that I noticed a little bit of bright red blood along with small amount of mucas with it. I have not had a bloody nose and when I blow my nose now everything comes out clear. Can you please tell me what your take on this is? I do not have any swelling in the neck area as far as I can feel.
