I have only had it for about 6 days but it is very bad. I know you dont normally see Drs about virus it is like flu. It has a very bad cough. But I am finding myself quite breathless if I cough or make any exeration at all. I also have read skin in places that feels hot and skin seems swollen. I can't sleep well at night for coughing. I just can't eat, but am able to sip drinks. I just couldn't cope with going down, there if they said to do nothing. I have almost totally lost my voice too so can't talk on phone easily.
