What can I do to treat body aches caused by the flu?

What can I do to treat body aches caused by the flu?

Analgesics: Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Ibuprofen help with body aches (myalgias), but incompletely effective. If <48hrs, dr. Might give tamiflu. Try a warm bath, vaporizer, lots of fluids, throat lozenges. Influenza is a miserable illness. If you haven't been vaccinated, i'd advise you to get it. There are 3 strains of influenza-so, you could theroretically get influenza 2 more times this season. Ugh!

Influenza vaccine: Flu shot side effects may include: slight swelling, redness or pain at vaccination site.

Can the flu shot cause a headache?

Yes it could: The flu shot has fragments of the h1n1 virus that caused the 2010 pandemic, and is known to produce a robust immune response. In certain cases, it may cause a headache which should go away. If your headache worsens where you feel extremely ill, begin to have neck pain or become confused, it may be something other than the flu shot- see your doctor if this is the case.
