Why is this cold taking so long?

I have been trying to get rid of what I think is a case of the common cold for 13 days now and I am wondering why it is taking so long...

I only felt really sick (swollen throat, constant sneezing, feverish, headache) the first two days and for the past week or so I have hardly had any of the symptoms besides body aches and feeling very weak/energy-less the whole time. I still wake up feeling very warm (but not warm enough to qualify as fever).
I went to see a doctor last week to check whether it might be sinusitis (I feel an unpleasant kind of pressure around my eyes and nose) but she said there was no sign of an infection.
I am a healthy (lots of fruits, veggies and exercise, no smoking or drinking) 36 year old male so I don't quite understand why it is taking my body so long to fight this virus. Any thoughts ?
