23yo male. Smoker. of this year I came down with a cold.

Customer Question
Hello, my name is *****...
Hello, my name is ***** ***** male. Smoker. I'm March of this year I came down with a cold. Symptoms included fever, swollen lymph nodes( only on the right side), and sore throat. Since March that same side of my throat has been sore. I have intermittent chest and ear pain in addition. I have also had difficulty swallowing and slight raspiness when breathing. The rasp consistently comes back minutes after clearing my throat. I've also had an increase in mucus though it's generally light yellow to light brown. It is again only the right side of my throat. The left has yet to have any issues. Same goes for my ears and chest.

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.
