A sore throat is never fun, but sometimes a sore throat is more than just a sore throat.
Dr. Patrick Woodard is finding sore throats that indicate bronchitis.
He said it looks a lot like influenza with headache, cough, and body aches.
Patients are coughing up phlegm and feel like they can hardly get out of bed.
This could quickly progress to pneumonia, so if you are noticing the problem, get to a doctor.
