Do I have a cold or something?? O_o

so about a week ago?? i had a virus im guessing... i didnt feel very well and had to be careful about what i ate. im all better now but... now i think i might have a cold?? but idk if its a cold because well... only one reason. i have a weird pressure in my chest. nothing painful but noticeable if you get what im saying. also i do have a slight sore throat and a little bit of a cough sometimes. so i was wondering.. is this a cold or what?? because i have no idea what it could be. never had a cold where i also have a pressure in my chest. :/

Hi and welcome. From a laymans point of view the pressure could be from mucus buildup in your chest. Also sneezing and coughing can  affect your chest muscles and feel as pressure but are just the muscles constricted.

As you have been experiencing a sore throat and a slight cough, the pressure feeling on your chest may in fact be a chest infection.

I would advise that you get checked out by the doctor.
