Okay please help me.

I started with the sniffles over the weekend. Now Iím in bed killer sore throat, stuffed up, my head feels like it weighs a thousand pounds. Every time I have to cough or blow my nose my face hurts like to an extreme. I donít have a fever Iíve checked a million times although I feel chilled. DH says the house is cold but idk.

Flu? Strep? Sinus infection? Help!!!!

May not be the same but I had similar symptoms before Christmas. I did have a slight fever but it would come and go. I thought it was a sinus infection but had no drainage. The sore throat was the worst I have ever had in my life. Tested negative for strep and the flu. After a day of antibiotic, I felt like a new person. The doctor just said it was probably a virus but since I had been sick for about 10 days at that point I needed an antibiotic. Hope you feel better soon!

I hope you feel better, but try a Medicine Ball tea from Starbucks, or google for ingredients, I had similar and the tea really helped. I never had to visit the doctor

Since you have gotten worse since you started with a cold over the weekend I would call the doctor tomorrow. It sounds like its probably a sinus or upper respiratory infection. You may need antibiotics.
