It is possible: If this what you have, the flue most likely self limited unless you developed complications. Good Luck

See below: You may have the flu. If you are having repeated chills where your body actually shakes, you need to see your physician. While flu can do this, more serious problems have to be ruled out.

What changes can I expect in my body in the second trimester?

Quite a few: In the second trimester, the baby continues to grow, making room for itself by pushing your organs out of the way. So your abdomen will enlarge, and towards the third trimester other problems like hemorrhoids, heartburn and back pain may result. "what to expect when expecting" is one of many good prenatal education books to consider reading for more information.

Wt. worsens symptoms: A person's back, hips, knees, and ankles take on a lot of stress when he carries a heavy backpack or gains 50-100 pounds in weight. Obesity can worsen joint problems such as pain, swelling, difficulty walking, or trouble climbing stairs. Even if the original cause of the joint problems were from other diseases or injuries, the heavier a person is, the more wear and tear the joints have to endure.

Few days: Even though half life of Lupron (leuprolide) is only 3 to 4 hrs plasama levels will remain high for few more days ( missing one dose is not a big problem ).
