Last wed my body started to feel hot and head heavy, no cough no sore throat, so i went to see the clinic dr. Dr gave me antibiotics, fever and lung meds. Since then my temperature daily is around 36-37.0, but still feel a bit hot and sometimes head heavy. Had slight sore throat and past 2 days started to feel like something is stuck in my throat/lungs, oxygen cannot enter fully, especially when lying down
