I am usually fit and well, but i've had a cold for over 2 weeks now which really knocked the stuffing out of me! Symptoms - a cough i cannot get rid of, phlem, sore sinuses, fever, feeling tired, loss of voice but not a sore throat. My doctor gave me Amoxocilin an antibiotic which seems to have worked - fever gone, less congested, and i feel better, but my cough has stayed. I had this earlier this year too. Is this just a cold virus?
Sounds like bronchitis. or just a really bad cold. I get a really bad cold once almost every year. When i get it after a few weeks my symptoms get much better but the couch will often last for a month.
