Hi,

How is your overall health? Do you have fever, gland swelling? Any chest pain, sputum or breathing difficulties?

Healthy, no fever nor swelling. No chest pain nor breathing difficulties. I did just get a pair glasses from the eye doctor this week if that means anything

Thank you for the information.

Based on your description, you started with cold symptoms.Most of the time cold/upper respiratory tract infection is caused by viruses and tends to recover on its own without any specific treatment. However, in small number of cases, infection spread to other surrounding structures such as ear, sinuses, lungs leading to more symptoms. This also increases the risk of bacterial infection which requires prescription meds to get rid of symptoms. In your case, I don't think you are getting any complication. As you recover, all your symptoms will subside gradually. Just continue with rest, drink adequate water, and use OTC meds like Tylenol for headache. Mots likely your headache is linked with this viral infection and it should recover within a few days, unless your have lingering sinusitis. If everything recover, except headache, then you might want to talk to your eye doctor as it can be vision related. The last thing, since it was protective sex, I don't think it as STDs.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question,you can reply to this post.

Regards,

Dr. Shah

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
