Patient :There's whooping cough and the flu going around my school, and over the weekend I got what I thought was a cold. Friday, I began to get a lot of sinus pain, nasal congestion, and a sore throat, Saturday, I had a lot of aching and more nasal congestion, and on Sunday I had a sore throat again. I thought I was getting better, but I now I'm continuing to cough. There's phlegm in the back of my throat and that's why I'm coughing, but I'm concerned that the mucus is from some sort of virus.
