Welcome to just answer
No the blood tests that you mentioned have nothing to do with your current illness
I say this because of the fact that the report that you mentioned was of last August
To co relate a blood test with an illness it must be a recent one
Also nothing in the results was abnormal to the extent that we could label you as immunocompromised
So just relax
Keep taking hot fluids
Keep yourself warm
And if viral the infection will settle itself soon
I hope this answers your question
Let me know if you have any further questions
If I'm not feeling much better by Monday, Jan. 17th, do you think I should see a doctor and maybe have some more blood work done since by then it will be over 3 weeks that I have been dealing with this. The coughing I can put up with; that mostly in the morning and at night. It's the constant feeling of being tired and fatigued that is bothering/worrying me the most.
Yes that would be a reasonable thing to do
Get to your doctor to get the blood works repeated
Is it normal this year for a respiratory virus to last this long? I've had them a few times in the past and it seems like after about 7 days I would be feeling much better, but no this year.
Well it can be a secondary bacterial infection but since you mentioned taking the Z pack I think that would have been treated
Do you have any further questions?
