I have had a persistent cough and head congestion three

Customer Question

I have had a persistent cough and head congestion for almost three weeks. No fever but I am coughing up phlegm with a yellow tint. If I breathe out heavily I can hear a slight rattling. I have been taking over the counter mucinex which helps but is not clearing up the issue. Do I need to go to the doctor?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?
Customer: Almost three weeks. No other symptoms but I do feel more tired than normal.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I'm a breast cancer survivor.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Naturopath about your situation and then connect you two.

You are overdue for the doctor.

Atypical pneumonia needs to be ruled out.

Sinus infection needs to be ruled out.

See a doctor today.
