A week ago I got what felt like the flu, stuffed up nose, muscle weakness, congestion in my chest. After a few days Everything cleared up. I have clear sinus' and I feel perfectly normal however I am still a little congested and now when I try to clear my throat or try to cough up some mucus There is some blood mixed into it. At first I didn't think anything of it because I figured I coughed too hard and that must have irritated my throat or lungs but My throat feels fine, no pain what so ever. I also do not feel any discomfort at all in my chest which is weird, you would think that i would be hurting somewhere. I don't even really feel the urge to cough, like something was blocking an air passage but I do it because I an feel it and want to get it out. Like a dummy I haven't been to the ER or Doctor yet was wondering if I should or not. The amount of blood varies and it is streaked through out the septum or it is just a spot.
