Last Friday night I started getting a sore throat. By Sunday I had a full blown cold. I get one about once a year. The last two nights my head and teeth have hurt too much to sleep and last night I was coughing. Yesterday I felt pretty good.
Now I am coughing, my head hurts, I have the sniffles and I have a slight temperature.
I am not too worried, but am wondering if I have the Coronavirus. I don’t think I do because I have been quite isolated, except for my husband, for more than two weeks. I took some walks but not around anybody.
My husband had a form of this, but not as bad, last week. I assume he picked up cold germs somewhere. I suppose he could have had a light case of the Coronavirus. So far my breathing is fine. I hope my temperature doesn’t rise. It is unusual for me to have a temperature.
I am confused about what I can take for head pain. I am not supposed to take ibuprofen because of heart stents, although I did for 10 yrs. and even if Tylenol wasn’t discouraged, it doesn’t work for me. Any other suggestions?
