Hello, I have been having problems with my nose and throat for the past twelve days. My nose is not stuffed up, nothing comes out my nose and all that mucus just drains into my throat. I cannot understand what is going on. The draining is causing my throat to hurt terribly, it hurts all the time and it is really hard for me to swallow. My voice has also changed. I have a deep, hoarse, and raspy voice now and speaking sometimes makes me cough. I feel pressure in my ears. Can you please tell me what is wrong with me? I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you in advance.
