Unusually I get horrible-taste mucus.

Hello. I have what I thought was an ordinary head cold, but when I blow my nose, or mucus runs down the back of my throat, I get a really horrible taste like feces in my mouth. I have never had this before. The only other thing that is different is that I have sort of a headache, but in my left cheek. I am a 50+ y.o. female who has ME/CFS - I usually get a cold or a chest infection when I dont pace myself or am severely stressed. Thanks in advance for any help.

My husband was diagnosed with a sinus infection, pretty sure he also has the flu because of all the symptoms he s having and several people at work were diagnosed. Now he is having strong tastes and smells of chlorine and food tastes horrible to the point of nausea. He is on antibiotics and this is day 7.

I m a 39 yr old, anglo-saxon, female (a out 30 lbs over-weight), and I ve had chronic back pain for over a year (around the centre if my back and the area near the spine and shoulder blade). It aches and feels numb . For just as long, I ve had severe constipation and right upper abdominal pain. Worse when breathing in. Occasionally, I notice bright, red blood on tissue after wiping after BM. In the last 2 months or so I have noticed black/dark spots in my very narrow, pencil-thin, stools (stools have been narrow for over a yr, also) but, now these spots are present. Other symptoms/details are: I m tired all the time, blood work normal (aside from Egrf {renal function} of 56), ct normal of abdomin (found burst ovarian cyst on right side), spinal MRI normal (bulging discs-Dr not concerned), normal ultra-sound, and normal colonoscopy. All these tests were performed in the last 90-120 days. My Dr is at a loss. I am in chronic pain and no relief for a over a year. No change in diet, pills/meds, stress(ers), or anything worth mentioning. I also have difficulty emptying my bladder during this past yr. I ve added flax seed to cereal, increased water, decreased meats, and generally just been trying to eat healthier . No real relief or positive changes. I ve had diarrhea only a handful of times in the past yr.. It is generally bright-yellow, watery, contains a lot of mucous , and burns like I ve just sh*t tobacco sauce. What other direction can I insist my dr take? I live in CAN and switching drs is next to impossible! Thank you in advance!!!

i had an mri which shows disc desiccation and scoliosis. need to know if scoliosis is the cause of my disc problems or is the disc problem due to scoliosis. I am a letter carrier (mail man) been on the job since 2005. Very labour intensive. The satchel is designed to distribute all the weight I carry on my back rather than on my shoulders. In 2003 i had an xray showed my lower back was normal. Are these present problems job related?
