Hello , I have bad drainage of mucus daily and through the night . It often chokes me or comes up when I am in conversation , The mucus has black spots in it . What does this mean? The drainage is so bad I throw up about every morning and it's yellowish green .
Black spots could be soot, mold, or more likely, blood. This could be a simply be a result of a sinus infection, which is indicated by the yellow-green mucus. You should go visit an ENT and make sure it's nothing more serious than a sinus infection. If it is an infection, and antibiotics don't work, a Sinus Flush will.
