Thank you all for your well wishes and advice to see the doctor. I did take your advice.
I saw him yesterday morning and he prescribed an antibiotic and a steroid. If there is no improvement in three days he'll do more extensive tests.
My reluctance to visit the doctor is part male ego, ie: the "I can fix it myself" mentality. Also, because I work with docs, I'm reluctant to pester them with niggling complaints about seemingly picayune illnesses. Colds really do resolve themselves without "medical" intervention and I thought this would be the case here.
So here's to my wife, my physician from afar (Jelly), and all my online family!!!! Thank you for your concern and prodding. ;-)
