Just this Monday I had the most unfortunate incident in my life. My laptop and phone got stolen from me. To make the long story short, it made me so anxious and mad.
A few hours after the incident, my throat started to feel scratchy and my voice was a bit strange. I started to have this mild cough which persists today. My nose also started to feel runny.
Yesterday, I felt some slight fatigue. My shoulders were heavy and my body was aching a bit. I also kept sneezing. All day and all night, I was also burning up.
I've been sneezing a lot too.
I took my temperature regularly and the thermometer reading flucutuated between 37.5 C to a whopping 38.1 C!
I read that common colds usually don't get a high fever! Now I am really worried that this might be something else!
This morning was also a bit okay -- I had bouts of my body heating up and feeling weak. I still sneeze and my nose is mildly congested.
To be honest, I've never felt any flu like symptoms in 5-6 years. This is the first time in a long time and I am immensely scared it could be something else!
