I am an athletic 34 years old and about couple months ago I got a mild cold. Mostly I had symptoms stuffy nose (sometimes clear, sometimes not clear mucus), itchy throat and seldom sneezing. Usually my colds don't last more than two weeks but this one seemed to linger around for ages. I was going to go to the doctor but then it started to calm down a bit. I can't get good night of sleep good because my nose gets very stuffy and I can't use my cpap machine.
It was still here this week and yesterday i woke up with a blocked up nose. I do windsurfing in a lake and sometimes my nose gets stuffy after the windsurfing day. The lake water is not the cleanest but I don't know if that would impact...
Do you think this could be something serious? This bears in mind the fact that I don't get colds that often, when I do they don't last for long and my immunity system cannot be that bad as I am very active, playing soccer, going to gym..etc
