    After 6 years of no colds or flu, I have come down with something....in summer yet!!

    Started as very bad sore throat. Temp approx 99.7. Scratchy throat - just feel lousy

    I have CFS

    Can't imagine how I got this, since I haven't been sick for so long

    Any thoughts?

    I feel bad complaining after laying in my soft bed watching the poor, poor people in the south

    Sounds like the kind of colds I get, but like you, I don't get them very often, thankfully.

    I hope you'll feel better soon. Colds will usually run a week or a bit more depending on the person. Because of your temperature keep an eye on if your cold turns into a sinus infection. Mucus will usually be yellor or green...

    Good luck and hope you feel better.

    Hugs,

    My Mom gets a rally bad one at least every other summer. I only had one once and it was awful.

    Vitamin C anyone?
