I've been slightly sick for about a week, and I am feeling frustrated because I don't know if I should go outside walking or not. Last Saturday I woke up feeling a little sick, which turned into a fever on Sunday and I felt very ill on Monday. All week I have been congested and a little tired, and I can feel that the cold is starting to slightly settle in my chest-but only a little.
I'm not coughing up phlegm or anything, and other than slightly tired for the past couple of days I am not feeling overly ill. I'm just worried because I was recently around a friend and her cousin and the cousin was recently diagnosed with pneumonia. She said that she didn't really seem to have any symptoms, but then suddenly she has been seeming to get worse and is now hospitalized.
So I don't know if I am being a hypochondriac or what because all I keep wondering is if pneumonia is contagious. I read online that it can be.
For the past two days I am starting to feel a slight wheezing in my chest and I have a dry cough. I'm really congested. I don't have a fever or anything.
Tuesday I went out walking slowly for about thirty minutes and I wanted to go out walking yesterday but it got dark too soon. Today I really want to go out walking, but I am not sure if I am supposed to be out walking when I am starting to feel that slight wheezing in the chest.
The good news is that I have felt anxious all week long because I am sick and I really want to get out and walk for an hour or so, but I am afraid to do it because I am afraid that I will wear myself out and make myself more sick. But I'm not having exhaustion or anything.
What to do? What to do?
I will wait until tomorrow to walk.
