Have sore throat and hoarse voice. Had body pain, nausea, fever and diziness. What am I dealing with?

I have been dealing with a soar throat for about 5 days. When it started out i had body aches, nausea , fever,dizzy.I still have dizziness ,congestion, soar throat,nasal drip,dry cough , sneezing and ears feel clogged. at this point i have been trying to find answers on what i may have. Whether i should go to the hospital and also whether i should be working out well having these symptoms.I also today developed hoarse voice. Should i worry about what i am dealing with and head to the hospital to get it checked? Or should i wait till the 7th day to see if it improves?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is most likely viral infection to start with. Usually it settles down by 4-th or 5-th day.
It is better to see a doctor at this stage / no need to wait / may be secondary bacterial infection is setting in.
You may need an antibiotic.
If it does not improve still, you will need investigations.
An Ear Nose Throat specialist is preferable.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
