For the past year, I have been getting colds and sore throats somewhat frequently. I was used to them and figured it was germs, or the weather until recently.
This past summer i became very ill, my lymph nodes were incredibly swollen and i was bed-ridden for nearly a week. I had a sore throat, fever, congestion, head-aches and body aches. I figured it was a virus/bad cold again, that needed to just clear out. About a week ago, I got the same illness (minus the swollen lymph nodes) and the headaches and body aches were a lot worse. I'm wondering if I am just getting sick again and again, or if this is one recurring illness.
