I'm waking up in the morning Coughing dark brown Mucus my Throat hurts and my ears do sometimes as well. I am a non smoker.?

Bacterial infection: Dark brown mucous could be dried blood. I know this may sound scary but I'm guessing you've been coughing a lot and really hard. Its easy to rupture capillaries or alveoli since that are so very thin. Capillaries are one cell thick and alveoli 2μm-600 nm. The throat and ears suggest a sinus infection. Its best if you see your primary care doctor. ...Read more

Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away in a day or two (mainly to check for strep throat).
