Boooo, I think I'm getting the same thing, which is probably a sinus and ear infection(s), and seems to be moving into my upper chest now.
My head is buzzing and I can hear my blood pulsing in my left ear.
I went to an Urgent Care center last year when my awful cough turned into bronchitis. Do you have any of those centers in your area?
I should have looked for one that my insurance covered first, but I didn't. I didn't want to drive 45 miles to my doctor's office
when this place is only 10 minutes away and on my way back home.
That stinks as far as work goes! I bet they'll complain if they end up with something similar, and of course blame you for it...
I hope you feel better!!!
