Sore throat, congestion, and nose bleed when waking up

I recently just got over a really bad flu, which I got hospitalized for, and I seemed to have gotten better by the end of last week, but lately, for the past few days, I have developed a different problem.

Every day, when I wake up, I find myself having a sore throat and feeling congested, with headaches. The sore throat would go away during the day, and initially, the congestion would too, but not anymore. Eventually, they would return the next day when I woke up.

Another thing that has started happening over the past couple of days is that my nose would get runny, and when I wipe my nose, there would be blood in the mucus. Similarly, if I blow my nose, I would find blood too on the tissue. The amount of blood has increased over the past couple of days.

Any help or suggestions on what could be causing this and how I could handle it would be greatly appreciated.

PS. I have been taking Tylenol and Sudafed lately, as well as some painkillers (Norcol) because I also had a circumcision done shortly before I got the flu, so all of this has been happening like pretty recently and in succession. Don't know if this additional information would be helpful or not.
