Bad cold??: How long have you had these problems? Sounds like there is a lot draining gown your throat as well. Do you have fever? Body aches!? Do your upper teeth hurt? If you have been sick longer than 10-14 days you should see your dr as you might have developed a sinus infection . Use a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom, try not to blow, keep you nose moist with saline spray . Mucinex (guaifenesin) helps too.
