Well, you're not alone, you've got a cold like millions of other adults right now around the world. Colds are upper respiratory infections
that are almost always caused by viruses in
adults. They typically get better after a week to ten days.
Viruses can even cause colored mucous, that thick discharge you can't see through, which many people believe only can come from a bacterial infection. Colds can even cause pressure in sinuses, when viruses affect the sinuses .
