Advice Needed ASAP - Please Read
Hi everyone - last Thursday I devlopled a nasty cold, stuffiness and blowing clear out out my nose from Thursday, Friday and some of Saturday, I took Musinex D which knocked me off my feet, I only took it twice, that stuff is insane. Anyway, over the weekend I felt drained and also some anixiety. My cold symptoms have for the most part stopped but when I wake up in the morning I am blowing thick yellow mucos out my nose but then I am good, I use the saline rinse and then some saline spray and I am good to go. Its been a week tomorrow and I still feel like crap. I have NO energy and dont feel like doing anything. I feel weak at times too. But no other symptoms. I did all this research and sounds like I have a virus and not bacteria. I do NOT want to run to the doctors if I can stick this out.
I did have a low temp of 96 for a few days when I woke up but then it rises to 98 as the day goes on. I just want to know is feeling like this normal for a virus? I am generally healthy, just slighly overweight and I smoke YES I KNOW BAD but other than that I am ok.
I dont want to put any antibiotics in me if I dont have too. I used to do that when I waas younger but now I am trying to fight it. I do feel MUCH BETTER than last week but not 100% yet. Is there a lot of viruses going around? My Dad was sick and My mom too. Then I got it. Just hoping its NOT a bacteria infection. I have not had a fever at all. I also have been sleeping good too. Any advice.
Take one day at a time.
