Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Green mucus can be from an infection.
Brown color can be from altered blood.
There can shortness of breath from it.
Chronic pharyngitis can cause discomfort in throat.
As the symptom is continuing for months, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
You can go to a free or urgent care clinic.
Blood count, sputum test, chest X ray can be taken.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
