Most often you have cough, productive or non productive, fever, malaise,chest congestion, feel very tired. But, sometimes you not have any of the above symptoms, just malaise, tiredness, maybe dehydrated and loss of appetite, of even has appetite but cannot eat.
If you have cough that persist more than a week and feel very make sure you see your primary care physician or to the Hospital ER. You need to have chest X-ray to make sure nothing else is going in your chest. Your doctor will decide what test you need.
Cough, fever, sputum production.
