I am new to this forum. I am diamondannie. I have felt really kind sick this past week. I reside in Central Florida. I have been Asthmatic most of my life. I am not sure whether what this is. I started feeling sick like with a runny nose, Tiredness, sneezing, and a persistent sore throat. I felt sick on last Saturday and Sunday. I felt much better on Monday and Tuesday. I felt sick again on Wednesday and Thursday. The worst day was on Thursday. We had some of that smoke from the county line fire on Thursday. My nose has been a little runny today, but none of the other symptoms.

One of my co-workers thought I had a cold. Another co-worker said it is probably allergies. The co-worker that thought I had a cold thinks he caught my cold and he is now currently sick.

What do you think? Newbie Needs advice.

With a cold, you don't feel sick for two days, feel better and than feel sick again. Normally a cold will last 7-10 with each day getting better. It's probably a coincidence that your co-worker got sick. But it sounds like allergies.

Can you describe how you feel sick? Or as I tell my monkey (kid) sickeroo (he thinks it is funny).

Runny Nose, Sneezing, Tiredness, and a persistent sore throat. I am not feeling too good now on this Friday Morning. My head feels like a lead balloon. I am extremely tired and can hardly type this without nodding off. On Wednesday morning, I was up for about an hour sneezing my head off. Wednesday of last week. I am laying back down again.

Perhaps a sinus infection?

Go to the doctor. You could have cold, allergies, sinus infection, strep, so on.
