Flare up or cold?

Hi everyone.

I've had fatigue and nausea for about 8 weeks.

However the last week I felt a lot worse with body aches and worsening nausea.

I woke up a few days ago feeling exactly like you do with a cold.I can feel Phlem on my chest and hear it in my voice.I visited family members who had colds the day before I felt worse.

Do you think I've caught a cold or is it what people refer to as a relapse/setback?

Really hoping it's a cold as I'm hoping I'll feel better sooner than if its my first setback.

Sounds like a cold to me but it will probably flare up your symptoms somewhat and may take you longer than a "normal" person to recover.

Take care x
