    Working out doesn't make the cold itself any worse because the common cold is viral, not infectious. However, it can leave you "winded" persay, especially if you've developed a chest cold where fluids tend to settle in the lungs until expelled by a cough. As well, as your body's natural immune system is fighting the common cold virus, your white blood cells are being depleted and reproducing constantly which tends to leave you feeling a bit "slackish". Exorcise tends to give a person additional energy, that is, if there body is already accustomed to a daily exorcise routine.

    Depending on sick you actually are

    I find that if I work when I just have the sniffles, not a full blown bed ridden fever halicinating cold, working out make me feel much better and clears up my sinuses

    You'd better rest for a some days. Healthy food, vitamins, plenty of liquids (water, jjuices, tea, not ice cold or too hot). No alcohol. Take a pill if you have fever and contact your doctor. Take care and get well soon! :)

    I should think so. If you have a cold you need to rest and save your energy, not go all out and spend it.

  • Yes, you may feel more fatigued and depending on your level of pain, that may turn you into a big baby..... You could feel better, but you could feel a lot worse. It depends on your body.

  • Yes it can be worse, as you add more stress to your body, as the infection is a stress factor it self.

    My nose runs more, but overall it makes me feel better. I don't do it if I'm having trouble breathing though, it just aggravates it.
