Heres what I think

Pre-Day 1 - Tingling throat
Day 1 - dying sore throat
Day 2 - sore throat goes from really bad to bad, nose begins to fill up with mucus
Day 3 - no more sore throat, nose is clogged like no other, ears are clogged, nose is red and chapped from blowing nose so much, nose slowly gets better
Day 4- usually I wake up the next day pretty good

But now I have a slight fever and my body feels real hot, when I just went to my bed, it felt like my head was about to explode...

anyone know if i'm almost over my cold? if not how much longer..
