a month of cold like symptoms won't go away help

Hey people..
my name is Juan im 38 years old and pretty healthy overall .. never really had health problems in the past but lyme disease about 2 years ago witch has been under control by doing test every year.
About a month ago i developed a cold or cold like symptoms , the classic runny nose , sore throat and body aches .. never fever or caught or any other symptoms .. after 2 weeks i finally saw a family doctor , he did noticed inflamed throat and did a test for strep throat that came out negative ,. he told me to rest , drink fluid , salt water gargles etc.. since then its been on and off .. some days i feel ok and some days i just spend the whole day in bed like if i had a cold again .. like my body its fighting something ..
in 2 days its going to be a month of this and im starting to freak out .. I made an app with a sinus specialist but they wont see me for a month because of course all this corona virus going on now in NYC .
I stared doing saline spray twice a day and i do feel like theres a lot of mucus coming out .. just transparent so that rules out any antibiotics i guess..
today i woke up super fatigue and worried and i dont know what else to do ..
should i go to the hospital .. any advice will be very appreciate it .. my anxiety level starting to peak
many thanks !
be safe guys !

It sounds like you may have a vital infection or you're experiencing some type of autoimmune reaction. Have you been experiencing any sudden stress unrelated to this or changed anything in your diet? I'm a registered nurse

Try eat ginger, raw ginger. If it still doesn't help, go see doctor.

Your symptoms remind me of hayfever: but I know you don't have hayfever. I think your body is allergic to something, in the way that pollen causes a runny rose and cold-like symptoms in hayfever. Perhaps there is something similar to pollen in your body - although NOT pollen. I realize I am coming out badly with this potential diagnosis. But I do think your body is telling you there is something you're allergic to. Your body is fighting it by making you have cold-like symptoms. Again, I am likening it to hayfever.

I'm afraid I'm not a doctor BUT I do think my advice could have value.

Do not panic, it doesnt seem like something that is life threatening. Try cold and flu medication. Consult a pharmacist too. Good luck.
