I started to get sick on Sunday with a dry, itchy throat. The next day my nodes became quite swollen and it would hurt to swallow or when I'd touch them. I've been coughing up a lot of phlegm (pale yellow color) and it hurts my chest when I cough. My nose has been stuffed up as well. I don't really have a fever, but my face feels warmer than the rest of my body at times. I'm not really wheezing either, but it hurts the back of my throat to breathe in deeply. I've been having trouble sleeping lately because of the pain/irritation. What do I have and should I see a doctor?
