Re: Alarming Cold Symptom

I think you need to see a Dr today and get checked, especially with severe headache and high temperature. Not to scare you, but end of summer is meningitis season. You didn't mention a stiff neck, but if that is present or the headaches are severe, you need to be examined right away. If you are lucky it might be strept throat or flu, in which case you need to be treated anyway.

Re: Alarming Cold Symptom

It all depends on what you have and how far along you are. Most infections do not affect the fetus, but without knowing what you have, it is impossible to say. Be sure to tell the Dr you are pregnant if not obvious so they are careful about any meds they may prescribe.

Re: Alarming Cold Symptom

You probably need an antibiotic. Go see a doctor asap. Colds don't generally give you a high fever or DARK coloured phleghm, but a secondary infection does.
