    How or why would this happen? Did I get two different virus strains? Did my body not finish fighting it off properly the first time?

    In case Enuma's response didn't make it clear, it is possible you hadn't fully recovered and overdid it, having a bit of relapse of symptoms. It is also possible, as you asked, that you picked up two different strains...there are several viruses going around this time of year, so you could have had bad luck there, especially if you are in contact with a lot of people.

    It could also be that you did not have a cold/virus, but an allergic response to something that you were repeatedly exposed to.
