I have a cold flu and I'm worry about it.

Patient : I have been sick since Sunday but at first I had a really sore throat which stop me from eating or even drinking water it was just painful I kept coughing. Then just yesterday night I started having a runny nose and started sneezing so bad, but my sore throat stop yesterday. Just now I woke up with a sore throat again, and runny nose. Should I be able to go to school without feeling really sick which can stop me from working.
