i thought i was out of the woods
 
i was finally starting to feel better, but on thursday i started with a sore Throat. 2 days later i was getting constant, thin pnd in my throat. it was only a minor annoyance since i was getting plenty of drainage and no facial pain.

the next day the pnd was much thicker and occuring more frequently. i was practically choking on it.

today ive start with some facial pain and pressure. im still getting drainage at least. ive also been running a temp from 99 - 100.

im really bummed b/c i was on 2 weeks of antibiotics a month ago. it sounds like a cold to me, but i hope it doesnt turn into bacterial sinusitis. is it normal for you to expereince sinus pain with a cold? also can mucus be yellowish green with a cold?

It sounds like you started with a cold but it may be turning into a sinus infection. The combination of symptoms you mention: Sinus Pain, Fever, and Discolored Mucus often indicate a bacterial infection.

You can get discolored mucus from a viral infection but you should probably check with your doctor.
