I have been suffering with a cold for five weeks
Probably just common cold,follow the advice below.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I already reviewed the attached report.
In my opinion your symptoms seem to be related to a common cold.
A lack of immune system can trigger the symptoms.
I already reviewed the medication that you are using and the treatment is correct.
I recommend using anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.
I also recommend using a vitamin C supplement to boost the immune system.
I suggest drinking liquids and rest a lot.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Thank you for your service, XXXXXXX Aardema
Some examinations are recommended for further evaluation.
I understand your concern.
I would recommend some examinations for further evaluation of the immune system.
A white blood cell count
T cell count
After the examinations, you can contact me again for further assistance, if needed.
Wishing you all the best.
Take care dear,
