Been having dry cough for 2 weeks (but now it is minimal). There is also constant phlegm in the throat.
Recently having headaches & pain in the back of the neck. These areas feel oddly warm too.
When I get these headaches my body starts to feel weak & wobbly.
(I have a history of anxiety & panic attacks).
