    This morning I woke up with a little sore throat, just thought it was a minor cold coming on.
    Now I can only keep my eyes open for a ten minutes at a time, and every time I wake up there's something else wrong: a sore throat that feels like I'm trying to swallow knives whether I swallow, breathe, cough, talk; chills, nausea, headache from h3ll, breathing is a task because of congestion, coughing and sneezing, an occasional horrible twinge of pain coming from my lungs.
    I'm a little paranoid because last year I got influenza, pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infection, and a cold back to back. I felt like was on death's doorstep for two months.

    I'm mainly posting this because I want people to feel bad for me. Is it working? Also, as a side note, what say you? Worth a trip to the doc?

    Take some Nyquil tonight and see how you feel in the morning. If you still feel crummy then get to the doctor or emergency clinic or whatever is easier. It doesn't sound too good but then again it could be nothing. I felt crummy all week but not bad enough to go to the doctor. I'm hoping to feel 100% tomorrow since it's Saturday :)

    Yep, it's working.

    Call the doctor this morning, or find a walk in clinic. But get on meds today so you'll be feeling better by Monday.

    I had a sore throat, congestion and a bad cough last week. Ended up going to a Walgreen's walk-in clinic on Sunday and they told me both ears were infected-all the congestion was from that. I wouldn't have guessed that because there was no pain there or anything, but I don't think I would have gotten better without that antibiotic.

    So long story short, yes, I would see a doctor. The worst they can say is that they can't give you a prescription because it's viral or something.

    Go!!!! I used to think I could conquer all viruses without a doctor's visit ... Until a few years ago when I just kept getting sicker and sicker. I got so sick that, by the time I desperately pulled over and went to a walk-in clinic I spotted on my way home from work, I had to take major meds to get well.

    Don't wait. Go see a doctor. There are really serious viruses out there that are impossible to kick without meds.
