Wake up with tons of chunky green boogers in throat, have weakness, plugged ears, throat soreness. Cause?

For past four days or so I ve been waking up and having tons of chunky boogers, green in color. They ve drained into my throat and I make that noise with the back of my throat to spit it out. Now today I m really weak, ears feel plugged and my throat is still sore. No cough or the like. Do I have a sinus infection and if so how long do I wait before going to my doctor. I ve tried a humidifier and no help.

Hello dear..
All these symptoms indicate that you might be having Upper Respiratory Tract Infection.
Management includes:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol
3. Antibiotics like amoxicillin (if bacterial infection is suspected)
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.
If symptoms still will be better to consult an ENT specialist.
Meanwhile...avoid taking cold food & drinks, maintain adequate hydration & take soft, non-spicy foods.
Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

From the description of your symptoms it appears that you are having an upper-respiratory tract infection, probably a throat infection. If you are having additional symptoms of headache, nasal stuffiness or facial congestion, then you may be having a rhino-sinusitis.

You can try simple measures like salt water gargling, steam inhalation, nasal drops and drinking hot fluids. In case your symptoms are severe or persistent or you develop other complications, then you may need a course of antibiotics.

Wish you all the best.
