All the others symptoms certainly could be viral illness, and should entirely resolve within three weeks. However, shortness of breath on exertion could be a problem if it was more than mild, which could be part of the fatigue and weakness that viral infection causes. If more than just mild, further evaluation needed. ...Read more
