Chest cold?

Posted by Itlandm on December 13, 2012

My head cold has pretty much dried up, but the chest cold is on the offensive now. I have a dry cough as if I have inhaled lots of dust, and a hint of pain in my chest when breathing deeply. My pulse is 40-50 beats too high, I am shivering now and then even when the room is warm. I have a slight temperature, although I hesitate to call it fever as it is just below 38 degrees C.


To further complicate things, my bowels also are growing loose now in the evening. I am not sure if that is part of the same illness or just happens at the same time. Perhaps that accounts for some of the feeling of weakness and the hard beating of my heart.
