I got a chill one night in Spain and shivered the whole night

Customer Question

I got a chill one night in Spain and shivered the whole night uncontrollably, had bad headache and cough and sharp pain in left lung. Went to the pharmacy and they gave me 10 days worth of antibiotics, but because I began to feel better after 2 days, stopped taking them. I have had a dry cough ever since I have been back, not a bad one but just now and again, also get a bit weazy. I am not short of breath or anything and have no pain in my lung now.
