Six weeks and still unwell

25 March 2019 got really wet cold and chilled doing a job in the rain. Felt a bit sniffily for a few days but otherwise OK from memory. 1 April 2019 went walking to the gym at 5:15 am, was cold and I only had shorts and t shirt on. By 3pm that day felt fatigued and generally flu like sick. The next week or so had a sinus infection, aching sinuses, headaches, earaches. Had Augmentin antibiotics, but it felt like infection moved down into my lungs. For 3 or so weeks woke up with fatigue generally feeling unwell, mild unproductive cough, aching all over but after a bit of exertion would break out into a sweat all over my chest. Regardless of feeling sick and exhausted and aching could only get a few nights sleep each night. 21st April 2019 went back to another doctor who thought I had mycoplasma infection/atypical pneumonia and she gave me antibiotics for such. On morning of 28th April 2019 sweating went away, but still feeling 50% energy and vitalogy, still mild pain in sinus, mild cough, presence on my lung/chest area generally still feeling unwell and unable to do much physical work as of 9 May 2019. Tested for mycoplasma last weekend but results negative. What on earth is wrong with me and will I ever feel well again?

Dealing with this via an email is probably not the best idea. Feather see an ENT, who can scope your nose. You may have developed chronic sinusitis.
