In brief: SOB bothers me.

When i say sob, i'm not referring to you or pcp.
Rather the shortness of breath. 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.
