Mmmm are these symptoms common for a cold?

Asked by Ame_Evil (3033 points ) December 18th, 2009

Well I’ve been “sick” since last Sunday, but the only symptom I seem to be having is a really nasty cough and phlegmyness (but not excessive).

The first day just felt like a normal cough, but it quickly got worse. On the Wednesday I found it hard to sleep as my legs were freezing cold and aching – but not sure if this was connected as our house isn’t heated overnight so gets pretty cold. On Thursday morning I spent a good 2 hours coughing my lungs out every time I had to breathe out. It’s Friday now, and I am feeling “better”, but still have a nasty cough. It isn’t making it hard to breathe, just extremely uncomfortable when breathing out.

The cough has also seemed to progress downwards. On the early days it hurt more or less in my neck, and now it seems to hurt in my chest.

I know I should probably see a doctor, but just wanted your ideas first if anyone has experienced something like this.
