<p>I am miserable.  For the past several days I have had increasing congestion and runny nose, accompanied by increased sneezing.  At first I thought it was pregnancy rhinitis (which I didn't even know existed until a few days ago).  However, this is more than just a little congestion.  At night the drainage makes my throat and ears hurt, but that goes away once I've been awake for a while.  I do have some coughing when the mucus gets built up in my throat.  My mucus is completely clear, and everything I've read says that it would be yellow or greenish if I had a cold or something else.  I have a ton of sinus pressure.</p>

<p>I figure it can't be allergies because everything where I live has been covered in snow and ice for days.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I drink bone broth daily, and will increase it just in case.  I've also been using the neti pot, but frequently one nostril is so completely clogged that nothing gets through with the neti pot, so I just give up sometimes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Do you think I have a cold?  What else can I do to feel better?</p>
