Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding raw chest and throat, headache, bodyache, green mucus and mettalic taste in mouth.

Your all above symptoms are favouring for respiratory tract infection with dyspepsia. To diagnose it and to treat it you are advice for these investigations-

1- Culture and sensitivity of phlegm.

2- Gram's staining of sputum.

3- X-Ray of paranasal sinuses and chest.

4- Blood- CBC, ESR, blood sugar (Fasting and post parendial).

5- Urine- Routine and microscopic.

By the inferences of above investigations one may diagnose the infective organism and the site of lesion and that may be accordingly manage.
