Been having a cold for the last 7 to 8 days. Started out with bloody nose for 2 days and a cough. Since then been having headache, neck pain, and sore throat last 4 days. Does hurt to swallow but not as bad as it use to be. Ears also feel clogged and feels like my head is under water.

Think wait it out or go to the clinic in the morning?

Since you can not differentiate cold from flu, get yourself to a MD...TODAY.

remember no one on cd can evaluate your medical status

I think you are the member who is forever running. Sounds TO ME like a constant state of being run down, why not take more care of yourself.

Maybe just make sure your will and medical permission and medical power of attorney are up to date.

If you have a high fever...it might be flu. If there is no fever, but you still feel like crap...go to a doctor...otherwise, this too, shall pass! Colds generally last about a week to 10 days.

cd is posting just about what I would. Give it time as long as you do not have a fever. Colds can last a long time, but if it persists more than another few days, then it is time to think "doctor" you have already mentioned your sour throat has gotten somewhat better. It really does sound like a crappy cold.
