I have had a myriad of symptoms for about 6 months now. I have a sore throat, nasal congestion, slight pain when swallowing saliva (and increased effort to swallow), persistent cough, clearing of my throat, feeling like I am not getting enough air when I breathe (and frequent yawning as a result), and popping of the ears every time I swallow. I also have fatigue and headaches, but those I have had for many years. Anyone have any clues what this could be?

  • Post-nasal dripSounds like it could be pneumonia. I typically get colds two to three times a year max, and when they come, I have to be very careful not to let it go. I have a history of asthma, and typically a cold uncared for will immediately turn to bronchitis. I would heavily suggest seeing a doctor and asking for antibiotics. It sounds like you gave it more than the college try to fight it off on your own. Good luck.
