I moved to Phoenix, AZ in September from Michigan. Moving to a warmer climate would make me think against getting a cold but I am now suffering my 4th one since I moved down. Is this something that is serious? Or is it just typical for a change like this in my life? Most have been accompanied by congestion lasting for a few days but this one is more of a chest cold. Have been coughing for two straight days. Everyone is yelling at me to see a doctor but I am stubborn and think this is just a cold. Should I fear there is something else wrong that is causing this constant sickness?

  • I moved to Phoenix AZ as well and had 5 colds in 5 months. Some lasted 3 weeks at a time. I feel like my immune system is failing. The symptoms are sometimes like massive nasal allergies. Very tired, and wake up tired. I am wondering whether the cause is environmental.
