Don't know if its just a cold or something worse...

It started off with just a stuffy nose and then sinus pressure and my ears. Then I started coughing so hard I started seeing spots. I'm ok but I'm dizzy and extremely tired.

  • Eh, it could be anything. I'm having some cold symptoms right now too. Mine started off with the stuffy, runny nose, sore throat. Now I can feel my chest getting congested. You might have it checked if the coughing is bothering you.

  • Have you ever had a head cold or chest cold? Sometime it starts in the head and goes to the cheats. Should like that is what is happening to you. Best to talks talk to a doctor.

  • You do realize a doctor could probably tell you. Sounds like sinus infection.

  • Could be anything. I've been coughing like that for weeks. Ride it out; see a doctor if it gets too bad. For the cough, try melting a teaspoon of butter and mixing it with a smidge of honey. It will soothe and coat your throat.
