Can a cold do this?

Okay so I NEVER get sick so sorry if this sounds like a stupid question.
Can mucus you sniff back that's making your throat sore because it's dripping down your nasal passage, make you nauseous? I'm soooo stuffed up right now and my throat hurts, my head hurts, I'm exhausted and nauseous.
I guess there is always a possibility I'm pregnant, but I JUST had my period last week so I really don't think that's it. But, the nausea makes me second guess myself.

  • If your head is stuffy, your ears may be too, and THAT can make you nauseous.

  • Ohhh yes, swallowing all that can make you very nauseous. It's why little kids frequently vomit mucus when they're sick. I get the same way. Get a good decongestant and tylenol.
