I have been fighting a bad cold with a fever since Monday. I saw my PCP on Monday night and flu tests came back negative. But here I am, 4 days later STILL fighting this nasty cold. And throughout this ordeal, my output has been pure liquid - a dark, disgusting smelling, green tinted, liquid. And I'm emptying it at least twice as often as before. Is that because I am sick? Or should I be more concerned about my change in output over the last week?
