Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The spotting is due to hormonal imbalance;polyp;submucus fibroid;cervical erosion etc for which you need to consult a Gynaecologist for examination and treatment.As for low back pain it can be due to or related to spotting.The headache may be due t excess work fatigue;sunstroke;sinusitis etc.Better get examined and treated for spotting and for headache you can take a painkiller.
Thanks

Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal?

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks
