Recently I developed a few symptoms, I started feeling light headed and weak, developed a chesty cough and a fever. I can only see a GP in a few days time so I was wondering if anybody knows what the cause of these symptoms might be? I believe I caught it from a friend but they did not visit their GP either. Thanks in advance
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms (feeling light headed and weak, developed a chesty cough and a fever) could be due to viral flu. Usually the symptoms subside in 5-7 days. Taking steam, warm fluids, antiallergics, acetaminophen, decongestants helps.
If this does not help please consult your GP.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
