Patient : I have many problems with my allergies and sinuses. However, over the last week or week and a half I have had an increase with these issues and I believe this is not just allergies. Currently, I have an off and on headache and I am having issues focusing and concentrating at work. I am really tired! I had a sore throat for several days now and now my throat is itchy. I can feel that I have phlegm and mucus stuck in my throat etc. When I blow my nose or finally get some spit out it is yellow and greenish (which I know is a sign of infection). Anyways, today I feel as though it has moved to my lungs, as it feels heavy when I breathe. I've had some coughing, but nothing too serious yet. Is this JUST a cold or could it be something worse?
