For the last 3 or 4 months I have been getting very mild cold symptoms. Mostly it starts with slightly sore lymph nodes behind my ears and I usually can fight it off with orange juice and some adequate rest. Then it goes away and comes back. About 3 or 4 weeks ago it reared it's ugly head with a darn good sore throat and a fever. Then it went away. THEN 2 days ago I get an itchy throat (not sore) a mild cough and a really stuffy nose and sneezing.
My worry is that it keeps coming back...
So what are your opinions? Is it just unlucky and I keep catching different ones? Or is something bigger and more dangerous? :-(
Sure, I suppose it could just be a string of bad luck. Maybe one was a cold, one was a mild touch of flu, and perhaps you could throw in a slight allergy to something. At some point you will have antibodies for every known contagion. You will be bullet proof, as they say.
But just to be safe, make sure you're eating a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, avoid stress and get a good nights sleep. Don't take any chances with your health and maybe you can strengthen your immune system.
Two months ago I had a real nasty cold and then a sinus infection. It cleared up, but a few weeks after I had mild cold symptoms for 4 days (sore throat, muscle aches, and some yellow mucus). It went away and then two weeks later (today) I got the same thing (sore throat, muscle aches, yellow mucus).
It feels almost like mono, which I had years ago. Maybe the sinus infection is chronic and only flares up every now and then? This is annoying more than debilitating... not worried enough yet to go to the doctor.
