Has anyone else ever felt this way???

For the past couple of days I feel like I have been fighting a cold...I have a scratchy throat and I am extremely tired....My question is....Has anyone ever had their chest and upper backache when fighting a cold??? My upper back and chest are really aching and seems to get a little better when taking tylenol? Is this sometimes typical with a virus??? Please help....I am driving myself insane!!!

Yes, I've had my upper chest and upper back ache from a cold before. Your whole upper respiratory system can be affected. But if it doesn't go away or your symptoms worsen over the next few days, you might want to see a doctor to make sure you don't have pneumonia or something. In the meantime, get some rest, drink lots of fluids (helps thin the mucus) and try Advil instead of Tylenol. I find that helps a lot more when body aches are involved.

Re: Has anyone else ever felt this way???

I think I just caught a flu, and I'm feeling terrible. I got a sore throat, I cough all the time but it's more of a dry cough, which sux. Whenever I cough, my back muscles hurt. Actually, my whole body aches: feet, arms, back, neck, head, eyes, damn, its so hard to look in another direction, I feel like someone's pulling out my eyeballs. I threw up this morning and I threw up a couple of minutes ago. This definetely sux. Tomorrow is my only day off so I hope I get better, to go back to school and work on friday. I hope u get better asap. btw, medicine for this bs sux big time. I bought a spray which is supposed to numb ur throat, well, it made me throw up, I bought some pills that taste like toilet cleaners (there's some resemblance in the smell), and there's another syrup that tastes like hell. like the flu wasnt enough. take care man
