Stomach upset, vomiting, trying to clear nasal passages, phlegm from nose. Treatment?

I just vomited because my stomach was upset. When I was trying to clear out my nasal passages by snorting it back down to my throat to spit... I saw a jelly and clear string-like form come out of my mouth. Not to be disgusting but I had no idea what it was, so I pulled it out of the water. It stayed in its orignal form, which looked almost like a rectangular noodle... but I haven t had noodles in weeks. The ONLY thing i can think it could be is a half digested coconut flake. But again, the string-like form was clear and jelly like. I don t know what to do or why this came out... do you have any ideas??

Hello and welcome to health care magic,

Although it was disgusting for you we deal with that day in and day out!
It is a mucous plug from the nose which can have so many shapes and sizes and also forms. You thus have nothing to worry about. In any case you can take an antihistamine like levocetrizine in consultation with your doctor and also get an ENT consult if the problem persists or recurs
