Patient

Q: I got a cold last week, have runny nose and congestion. Now my chest hurts, do I need to be concerned?

Doctor

A:   Hi.

Runny nose followed by chest congestion and now pain in the chest, you have to be concerned as you have to be examined clinically by a Doctor and have to undergo the relevant tests of X-ray of the chest and blood investigations to know the exact stage of disease you are in to have a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps you.
