EXTREME Amounts of Mucus!!! Help.

I am not sure if this is related to allergies but I believe this is the best place, since it mainly involves my nose. I was at the eye doctors to get glasses instead of my contacts because I have extremely dry eyes, and been through multiple eye tests for my dry eyes, and my option now is a procedure to add these plastic tear ducts because he said he didn't see evidence of allergies on why I might have dry eyes.

I am only feeling slightly sick. I was off of school Friday, and Monday because of throwing up. But, I do not believe all this mucus is from the cold that I had. I did not take a temperature at all, because I did not feel hot or felt that I would have a temperature. I only threw up about total of 5 times but only on that Friday and Monday. The mucus started about mid Thursday, and is still producing up to this minute. I always had issues with Mucus and now it's just to the point I want to find some answer's.

Now some information on why this is abnormal to me, when I take a shower I blow out so much mucus through out my ahhh 10 minute shower non stop. Only day I wanted to see just how much mucus I was producing so I filled half of a Water Bottle of only some of the mucus I remembered to spit into it. I am constantly coughing up mucus, I cannot sneeze without mucus coming out. It's bad, I just want some answers or suggestions of what this could be, just remember I always am doing this it just worsens when I get the cold or sick.

I take 1 Vitamin C 1000mg SID, 1 Excedrin SID, only 1 Allegra on Tuesday stopped Allegra because I did not feel much of anything and I do not like taking a lot of medications, none of this seems to be helping or being beneficial of anything as there is no decrease.

The mucus is clear, very slight tint of green, but mainly clear and in clumps at a time. I have tried some home remedies such as blowing it all out during a shower, and 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar, 2/3 cup cold water and gargle 3 times while bending over and spitting it all out, that did not help either it just comes right back and not too much mucus came out during it either.

Information about me, I am 19 years old, Non smoker, non drinker, full time student, part time worker almost everyday so always on my feet. About 195lbs, but with muscle build. Not the best food choices either.

Need anymore information, let me know. Thanks

Re: EXTREME Amounts of Mucus!!! Help.

When mucous has a yellow or green color to it, indicates a sinus infection.

No doubt it is a sinus infection as a result of your recent respiratory problem.

You need to see a doctor for proper treatment.

Sinus infections can go on and on and on if not brought under control.

Re: EXTREME Amounts of Mucus!!! Help.

It could be allergy-related. The best way to find out is to make an appointment with an allergist and get skin-scratch testing.

But it's clear, still think it's a sinus infection?
