Is this just a cold?
« on: February 27, 2014, 04:42:06 PM »
My mum has rheumatoid arthritis which means her immune system is weakened. Today she started feeling ill and very tired, so she napped but she does that a lot with the RA, she has sore eyes, a headache, felt cold, no rash as far as I know, headache, runny nose, sneeze, coughing. Is this a cold? 
Also she has muscle pain

Definitely sounds like one!  Any fever?  A fever of over 101 could be the flu - also if she got sick pretty quickly it could be a flu.  Otherwise sounds like your standard head cold.

Sounds like a cold. My doctor said a fever is anything over 100 degrees F.
