Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

You seem to ahve a viral upper respiratory infection.

Hi..coachtaylor.., you need to be clinically examined, evaluated and investigate..
the above symptoms are suggestive of viral fever., if its so, then it will resolve by 5 to 7 days..
you need to be treated with antibiotics.. consult physician..

Take care..
