I have been sick with fever (reduced by medication), head aches (mild), stuffy nose, congestion in head and chest, cough, lots of phlegm, very exhausted (except medications help up lift my energy, O.T.C., and prescribed), been sick for 27 days. My chest feels a little dry but still coughing up phlegm, can here congestion in my voice. Not sure if I have flu or cold.
I see that you posted this a long time ago, and I hope that you consulted your doctor about a treatment plan. Please feel free to update us.
The flu generally does not last for 27 days, but it can cause complications that linger (such as pneumonia or a sinus infection.) Only your doctor can make the ultimate diagnosis.
I do hope you found relief.
