Feeling like I'm coming down with something for over a week.

I feel really odd.
Tired, nose a little stuffy, chest a bit heavy, head a little fuzzy, mpouth. It feels like I'm about to come down with something but its been like this for over a week.
I'm not sneezing nor coughing though, I just feel blerch.

Does that make sense?
Any one with idea what it could be?

Dry mouth that should say.

I get this every couple of months or so when colds are doing the rounds. I think it's just your body successfully fighting off a virus that would otherwise make you feel pretty ill!

I only tend to get properly unwell once a virus or infection hits my chest. Up until then I just get the sort of niggly feelings you describe.

Hope you're right and thanks for the reply. I just feel lethargic and poopy. smile

I've had that the last few days and woke yesterday feeling like I had a tonne weight on my sternum. I started coughing last night, barking, croup like cough, and this morning it was worse, with a croaky throat. I'm starting to feel like the coughis easing already though, so fingers crossed it's not a lingering lurgy. Hope yours passes soon.
