I've been lethargic, achy and have had chest discomfort for the better part of eight days now. I don't have a cough ( no mucus) or running/congested nose. Felt a little warm on a couple of the days, not anymore though. Went to the doctor and they said just a virus with no meds recommended. How long can it take for this virus to run its course and before I should seek medical treatment again? Thank you.
