I have a 3 day rule that I adopted in my younger years living with D. If it doesn't improve in 3 days I get medical help. In 2006 I had a cold that seemed to improve but the cough didn't, I also had a wheeze. I went to the ER and found I had Pneumonia. My advice is to see your healthcare team right away.

Yes, go to a doctor.

Not to scare you, but the extreme tiredness & other symptoms sounds like pneumonia. I've had it twice & never felt so lethargic.

When I doubt, call the doc. Hope its nothing serious

Thanks, everyone. I called my PCP this afternoon, and she wants to see me tomorrow morning. I hope it turns out to be a case of me overreacting.

Thanks for all the support, guys! My PCP suspected a secondary infection and put me on antibiotics (which she almost never does), so I guess I wasn't overreacting after all. She said that I should start feeling better soon, and to call if I'm not much better by Friday.

So, I'm off to bed to get some much needed rest! Catch you all later.
