I've experiancing common cold symptoms for the past three days now. I've had a sore throat and its just been getting worse I've also had a runny nose, headache, swollen lymph node in my neck, no fever. This morning when I woke up I coughed and it just killed my chest. Throughout the day my sore throat hasen't gotton any better and the pain in my chest has just gotton worse. Do I have something I need to worry about? I've never had this chest pain before when I've come down with a cold. Should I see a doctor or just let the cold run it's course?
