I have had a cold...
I have had a cold for over a week now. Started as a sore throat, and proceeded to all cold symptoms. It is now 8 days and my symptoms are lessening, just congestion but I feel very very tired and achy. Wouldn't I start to have more energy as the symptoms are lessening and I assume the virus is leaving my body? What can I do for this tiredness? Anything I can do to increase my energy and stop my achiness?

The tiredness can last up to 3 weeks after the viral attack subsides. This is called postviral fatigue. For this, the best thing to do is to keep yourself hydrated and also take camomille tea and a daily vitamin B complex for a couple of weeks.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

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.
