    I feel pretty ill - I feel really really cold even though it's 27 degrees in my room and I'm wearing three bulky layers, have a runny nose, headache, very tired. I'm not sure if this is a really bad cold

    I want to go to the gym. Would this be a bad idea?? I've been advised to rest at least for today, but I really really struggle to do this..

    By going to the gym, you are essentially using the energy for working out rather than fighting the disease.

    Therefore you are basically worsen your illness.

    Just rest and relax.

    tbh even if you do go to the gym you aren't going to get much done as you're not going to work as well as you could on most days. I don't recommend it, a week off from the gym is fine.

    I'm sure your fellow gym goers will really appreciate the trail of pathogens you will leave in the gym.

    If all illness is above the neck i.e. runny nose headache - you can go gym
    Below the neck i.e. aching muscles do not go gym.

    central heating?

    OP don't go to the gym... you're not doing yourself any favours, you won't have a good work out, you'll extend your illness and probably infect a bunch of other people at the gym
