Patient : For the past 2 weeks I've had a chest cold. I've used mucinex Dm, vicks vapor rub etc, and am stil not over it. I'm coughing constantly, not sleeping well, and since getting this cold,everything from coughing nonstop, chest being sore ( assuming from coughing, sneezing, etc. I have developed 2 new symptoms. The first being a horribly painful elbow. It's very red, and the pain only increases each day. The second symptom is yesterday morning when I woke up I noticed my left upper eye lid, and brow bone were very swollen , tender and sore. This morning the swelling has only increased and it feels like I've been punched in my eye. Can you tell me what's going on with this and if it's all related somehow ? Thank You.
