Posted by startl

For the past 2 weeks I've been sick off and on with sore throat and cough and then Sunday night my sore throat went away. Then on Monday I was having pain in my back and wheezing, and later that night fever and chills and a headache the Tylenol worked for the fever but not the headache. Monday night through now when I cough my head hurts and when I have a productive cough my mucus is red or reddish brown. I don't have money or insurance to go to the doctor.

It sounds like a sinus infection, have you seen a Dr?  You can get swollen glands too from it, and ear infections.
