Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding stuffy nose, sore throat, blood in sputum and burning in throat after coughing.

I have analyse your symptoms and co-related them to think about yhe pathophysiology going on you. I am suspecting that most probably you are suffering from respiratory tract infection involving both upper and lower respiratory tract and sinuses. To diagnose properly you should do these investigations-

(a) C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses.

(b) X-Ray chest - P.A. view.

(c) Culture and sensitivity of throat swab.

(d) Sputum for Afb.

After this a thorough examination of nose and paranasal sinuses, throat and chest and there clinical co-relation with inferences of investigations one can reach to a correct diagnosis and that may be plan for treatment.
