I have contracted a terrible cold and it has been giving me hell for over a week now. It is the stuffy cold that has resulted in a cough and I have been coughing so much that I hurt. When I woke up in the morning my throat’s so painful as I had been coughing throughout the night. It is three days now and it is hurting even now. The cough is improving and at times my throat feels better too but It is very painful to swallow anything. Do you think this soreness of the throat was the result of my incessant coughing? Has this happened to any of you? I think that if this is not better by Thursday I will make an appointment with the doctor and go and se him the next day.
