Hey! I'm new to the boards. I have had a cold for a week now. I'm not even sure exactly when it started. On sunday, I started coughing so hard that I was throwing up. From sunday until about tuesday it continued to worsen. I think tuesday night was the worse of it as far as how I feel. One of my symptoms, a bad headache has been better on wednesday and thursday. My cough is not really any worse than it was on tuesday, but it is not really much better and my wife thinks I should go to the doctor. I really don't want to go to the doctor if I don't have something that can be treated. I don't want to just have the symptoms slowed down. I am taking care of the latter.
