I'm getting upper respiratory infections more often. The cough lingers for weeks. I was a healthy child growing up, seems like I'm always getting upper respiratory infections now and my whole family is getting them. The doctors are prescribing the antibiotics and steroids.

On June 24 2018 I got an upper respiratory infection traveling. It started with a sore throat which got better. Then I had a runny nose. Five days in it has moved to a fairly nasty wet cough. I feel better when I rest, feeling very tired and sleeping 18 hours a day. I missed work today.

I have had a cold for 10 days. It feels like my head is about to explode. I have chills and feel tired! I have stuffy nose, sore throat and itchy eyes from the upper respiratory infection.

I went to the doctor yesterday. The first thing they did was check me for the flu. Negative on the flu. He said I had an upper respiratory infection. I feel so bad. He gave me antibiotics and a nose spray. He also gave me medicine for my nose.
