Do sore throats get red brownish mucus?

That can occur.

Throat_pain
For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have Strep Throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider Tylenol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: Mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with Aloe Vera juice twice a day.

I always seem to get sore throats and thick mucus in my throat in the winter, esp. in the mornings when I wake up. What could cause this?

Heating system?

Humidifier
If it only happens in the winter, it can be your heating dries out the air which dries your airway, causes mucus do dry and thicken and throat tissues to dry and get irritated. Try using a cool-misting humidifier in your bedroom.

Coughing mucus and soar throat 37 hours after upper GI endoscopy. Is this normal?

Can check with Dr.

Open-uri20130223-6598-spycx2
Sore throat symptoms may or may not have something to do with the upper GI endoscopy, since the throat was ok for a day and a half after the procedure. With such symptoms, one can call her primary care doctor or the GI doctor to see what the cause might be. If not related to the upper GI, the sore throat could be a cold or a strep throat infection, among other things.

Asthma

Asthma
your asthma is out of control, you should see your doctor to get a maintenance inhaler and see if you have an infection that needs to be treated. ultimately you will need to see an allergist to determine your asthma triggers

Had a soar throat an green mucus now I feel better but have like a tickle in my throat an feel like I have to cough every minute but nothing comes up?

Could be reflux

Neck-throat
Silent acid reflux, which many folks have without symptoms, can prolong recovery from a sore throat. Try staying away from caffeine and alcohol for a few days. And if you smoke definitely stop that.

im coughing up blood and mucus with a headache and sore troat..have had these symptoms for about a week...what are some possiblie illnesses that i ha?

Hemoptysis...

Bronchitis
Coughing blood is called hemoptysis and the most common reason for this is bronchitis. However, you need to see your doctor as soon as possible because hemoptysis can also be due to malignancy. Your doctor will need to evaluate you to be certain you have a benign explanation for your hemoptysis. If you are smoking, you need to quit to limit airway inflammation. Your doctor can also help with this.

I was diagnosed with the flu. Yet the test came back negative. I have a fever of over 100, aches, chills,bloody mucus, soar throat. Is this the flu?

Influenza

153859535
This illness is caused by a virus and it can be simulated by other viruses like parainfluenza, adenovirus, enteroviruses, and so on. Do not know what test was done and whether it has a high false negative frequency, but it does sound like you have a flu-like illness for which antibiotics are unnecessary.
