A member asked:

I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose and sore muscles, do I have a cold or the flu? It is cold outside

Very similar symptom: "colds" and "flu"s are both viral infections that have very similar symptoms as you described - both cause stuffy nose and sore throat and muscles and even fevers. Both should also resolve in 2-5 days. The "flu" that the flu shot prevents is "influenza a or b" - which is much more aggressive - causing sudden onset of very high fevers and muscle aches to the point of unable to get out of bed...

A 41-year-old member asked:

Can my 8 year old take Claritin (loratadine) and ibuprofen together? Not sure if her runny nose is due to allergies, but she has a fever.

Yes: The answer is yes...Antihistamines (claritin, zyrtec, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) etc) and anti-fever (motrin, tylenol) can be taken together. If your child has a fever, it is not likely to be from allergies, however te antihistamines can still be used for sympom relief for upper respiratory symptoms (runny nose, sneezing, etc). If fevers are persistently >100.4, or for any concerns, ask your doctor.

Blurry vision: Persistent headache with blurry vision-- you may wish to see a neurologist-- even though it could be a migraine, the duration of this headache is worrisome. Talk to you primary doctor today about your options.

Infection: You have an illness...Probably viral (because most illnesses are). Strep throat can also produce those symptoms. It is always a good choice to be seen when you feel so awful...If ears hurt too it could be an ear infection and having treatment choices is very helpful. Make an appointment to be seen.
