Tell me what you think

I've never been someone who was on top of my health. For as long as I can recall I've felt weak because I am anemic. Other than that, I get throat aches and headaches regularly.

Recently though, I went to the dentist and he told me I have a sinus infection. I'm not used to sinus infections. I feel pressure in the fore front of my head, and I feel pressure baring down on my eyes. My headaches have gotten more uncomfortable and my body is the achiest it's ever been. I know I'm stressed, I mean CLEARLY I'm stressed, but do you think these are things I should worry about in regards to ARS? I'm on my 5th week, and I know since my exposure I've felt syptomish things, but nothing I can spot out, the sinus thing is irregular though. I don't have a fever, but still, should I be worried?

i suggest a first aid tip for your throat my friend try this it works warm salt solution. ( 1 MUG of water + 1 table spoon of salt + stir until totally dissolved + microwave it 30 seconds ) gargle with it 3 times aday kiss your throat aches good bye ( i suggest do it after meals ) . headaches have your eye checked it might be causing you head aches. dont worry what you are experincing is not ARS its to late for it to start at 5 weeks.

Realistically, the chances of ARS starting at week 5 is almost nil.  ARS typically starts at week 2-4 and is almost always characterized by fever.
