Resolved Question:

I had a bad cold and it lasted for about three weeks. I had a bad head cold, alot of fluid in nose, very wet cough. All my symptoms have left except for aches, slight chills and light headedness, and I have had that for a week. Is this part of my cold or something else? I have also felt very run down.

Well I was sick the last week of Feb. it got better, went on a cruise and got another cold which was the one I explained and it got better and now this is the only problem i have had for a week

I think that is a good idea
