Got sick on December 3 with breathing problems, sore throat, fatigue, no appetite. They gave me a nebulizer treatment and prednisone tablets. Went back and they said my breathing was better but am still sick. Now I have days where I sweat a lot. Does anybody else have these problems??? When I went the second time ... they said there was nothing they could do. They think it will go away in time, I guess. Am worn out from this. I do have allergic asthma which makes everything worse.

maybe you are right...I live in the countryside and it takes them forever to contact you. They did test me for the flu. she said even if it were the flu, nothing could be done.

Well it got to the point that I made an ENT appointment because my throat was so sore. That went away but still very tired with little appetite. Besides all that, it is extremely cold here.
