    Almost constant cold symptoms

    Sorry in advance for the TMI.

    I'm 23 and for the past 2 years or so I've been getting 'cold' after cold after cold. The symptoms linger for months, then I get a few weeks or so of being ok again, then another 'cold' hits.

    However, I don't think it's actually a cold, because I don't feel horrible and ill like I did when I used to get them at a more normal rate (once every 2 years). Normally I'd feel really rubbish, weak and run down for a week or so then I'd be ok again. I would know it was a cold. With these I feel a bit weak and strange for a day or two, not too bad, then I'll get congested, mucous, phlegm on my chest (varies between clear, green, yellow...), post-nasal drip and that lasts for months before a few weeks of reprieve, then another one will hit. I was rarely sick beforehand. Now every time I inhale I will feel my chest rattle and I can bring up some more phlegm... It's also ruining my voice having all that going on almost 24/7.

    I don't smoke or anything.

    Any ideas? I will be going to the GP soon and I have brought it up before but I've always been fobbed off... Not this time.

    Thank you in advance.
