Viral Infection: A viral infection usually doesn't last that long but cough and the other symptoms could last for a while. If you have these symptoms at the same time each year, it could be 'seasonal allergies' too. Continue the symptomatic treatment. Get checked by your doctor for any allergies (like to pollen, dust mites, pets) etc. Aviod the triggers if you test positive for that. ...Read more

Been sick since yesterday.  Fever, sore throat, runny nose and headache.  Today, my left hand feels bruised and heavy?  Worried about a stroke??

Anxiety: Fever, sore throat, runny nose and headache sound pretty typical for an upper respiratory infection (aka "cold"). Colds don't cause strokes. You list anxiety and panic attacks on your profile - I suspect your fear of a stroke falls into that category. Be brave. You're going to get better! ...Read more

Sore throat,stuffy/runny nose, headache, chapped/bloody lips, coughing up blood. What's wrong?

Sore throat,stuffy/runny nose, headache, chapped/bloody lips, coughing up blood. What's wrong?

You need exam by Dr.: Coughing up blood should never be ignored and should warrant an office visit or at least a phone call to your physician. A normal cold will not usually result in coughing up blood unless the coughing was very prolonged and severe. Even then it's best to speak with your physician as it is one of the warning signs of lung cancer. Chelilitis is the term for inflammation of the lips. See: http://bit.ly/1pgW3B4 ...Read more

I have a runny nose, sore throat, weak, & a headache. What medicines do you recommend?

Rest & Liquids: If you have a virus, which is a common cause of head colds, i'm afraid the best thing is to rest and drink plenty of clear fluids; your body will have to largely fight this off. Acetaminophen can help alleviate some of your discomfort, and warm herbal tea with honey is very soothing for a sore throat. If you have a high fever however, might be good to swing by your dr.'s office. ...Read more
