The body is an infinitely complex mass of interacting systems. People like to think doctors see it all clearly but it’s not always obvious what’s a hiccup in the system and what’s a full on medical disaster. We figure that out in our first year of residency. We spend the rest of our careers lying about it.
It’s just a cold. Muscle through it. It’ll pass. Nothing’s really wrong. We’re doctors, we’d know if something was wrong. We’ll be fine. Nothing’s wrong.
