My Husband is 27 years old, and in good health is active and usually very happy. In the last three weeks he got a very bad cold that seemed to get better then the same symptoms resurfaced for about three or four days, since then he's not been himself, he's still coughing but nothing comes up. He's tired, irratible, his appetite is diminished, he has dark circles under and around his eyes, and in three weeks he's lost 14lbs., please help.
