sick for 7 weeks

for over seven weeks I've had cold symptoms that come and go. I get a sore throat cough sometimes dry sometimes producing some phlem not yellow just green sometimes I'm dizzy and sometimes I get a headache. all of these symptoms can be together or sometimes one or two at a time. I also have swollen glands and sores in my nose,. Does anyone know what this could be or why all of this keeps coming back

Re: sick for 7 weeks

I'd go and see your doctor and tell him exactly what you wrote down. It sounds pretty serious and should be handled by a health care professional. It sounds like a viral infection or mononucleosis. I'm not a doctor so don't self diagnose yourself with any of those; but this I'll say, go see a doctor as soon as you can!

I went to the Doc today she thinks it's a sinus infection, she gave me Zithromax which seems to do the trick for me so we'll see.

Re: sick for 7 weeks

Hi DM,

I just was diagnosed with a sinus/larynx infection. I'm on clavulin since Friday and am doing sooooo much better, whew! I was on zithromax 2 years ago for chest cold and it cleared up nicely.

Get well soon,
quincy
