I have what I thought was a cold. Severe head

I have what I thought was a cold.
Severe head throbbing, stuffy nose....then I got nashea (not sure how to spell it) and diahhrea. Could it be the flu? It started with feeling like razor blades in my throat on Sunday - this is now Wed and the sore throat is gone, but other symptoms remain

I am a 24 year old female and have had a cold for 3 days. today is day 3 actually. it started out as colds for me normally do, waking up with a dry swollen sore throat and then gradually started to feel that yucky feeling in my nose knowing i was getting a cold. but yesterday my neck started hurting really really bad. i thought it was just sore from being propt up on my pillows so i removed the pillows. then today i went to work and my neck is so tender to the touch and feels a bit swollen i guess. i know the lymph nodes behind both of my ears are swollen, the left one is quite large actually. the ones under my jaw are not very swollen, but im guessing the nodes in my neck are also swollen which is causing the pain. however, the nodes are really uncomfortable right now and they feel kind of like they are burning. my neck feels like i have a sunburn because it is very sensitive to my touch and my shoulders and neck feel acky.. my entire head feels really hot from the inside like i have a fever but when you touch the skin it feels normal but i have the sweats..My face and scalp will not stop sweating and it just feels like the are behind my ears and my neck are on fire.. my cold is much better than it was, i can breath out of my nose again, i have my taste back and im no longer sneezing. but my mucous isnt runny anymore its thicker and has a yellow tinge to it which im suspecting my cold turned into a sinus infection because i still sound all stuffed up when i talk and there is a very very slight pressure in my nose. No coughing though and my chest doesnt hurt. But why am i sweating and feel so hot under my skin but when i touch my skin it is not hot like a fever? and why are the nodes behind my ears and the back of my neck feel like they are on fire?? what can i do about the soreness these are causing me??

Hi my name is Jacqueline and both my Husband and I have both been sick with what I have thought to be just a nasty cold for close to 2 weeks or longer. I have been trying to get us both *Unsick* and back on our feet again but being our age (in our 60 s) even a common cold takes so much longer to get rid of. We didnt get a Flu shot and we really dont believe in them because they only shorten the duration of the flu and not to prevent getting it. I think mine is heading into my chest so not sure if I need to call my PA or just keep resting and doing what I have, fluids, Herbal Teas, Vit. C and oranges and orange juice, Nyquil at night and either Tylenol or ASA....what next? Thank You, Jacqueline Chavez

I am being treated for allergies. Seems I have a chronic plugged sinus. Have also have a chest cold with a cough and very little coming up. Sometimes when I cough I feel very light headed - like I could pass out. My condition has been going on for years and has only gotten worse. I am on so many drugs - prednisone , inhalers, Advair, Breo, Spiriva, nasal sprays- mometasone,Nasonex, pills- Allegra,Singulair, and finally Xolair 375ml. I use a cpap and when I get up at 3-4am I cannot go back to sleep . My nose starts running and the cough starts. I take a sudafed and finally fall asleep. Tested positive for allergies- dust mites, mold, grass. What the heck do I have? Getting exhausted. Have thrown the kitchen sink at it- occasionally I get better for a couple weeks- then it comes back. Have not smoked in 8 years and have had no lung problems. Any thoughts?
