Ongoing headache for week, suddenly brownish orange mucus coming from blown nose
I was just wondering if I should see a doctor because I dont have one....anyway, I've had a headache all week which is very uncommon for me. My daughter was diagnosed with broncholitis last week and is on an inhaler, but now I blew my nose this morning which I' ve been doing all week since I got sick form my daughter and the mucus was brownish-orange and its alot of it, I've never seen mucus this dark before so it had me kind of concerned. ANd I keep blowing it and the same thing happens. Doesnt look like bloody mucus, it's just brownish- orange like the color of iodine when it hits something, should i be worried?

You should see a doctor and should do so without delay.  The brownish red mucus suggests a nose and sinus infection.  This alone, without spread beyond the sinuses can give one a headache, but occasionally a sinus infection spreads beyond the sinuses, causing a more serious headache.  While that is unlikely, that is the reason why you should seek medical attention promptly.
