My husband has flu we think and is on tamiflu! his chest feels sore when he coughs ! his temp is staying around 100.2, is this normal?

Flu: Tamiflu (oseltamivir) works fast and well within 24-48 hours if it's working for the infection. I don't know how long he has been on tamiflu (oseltamivir) and others that could have been given. If he is still having problem, you should go back to the doctor and explain your concern and if the doctor feels it is necessary, cxr can be done. Keep up with fluids and rest. Good luck. ...Read more

Chest Pain: that deep breath as you were reaching climax caused a stretching of the muscles of the chest beyond usual. The resulting tenderness would be expected just like the overstretching of any muscles. Time and Ibuprofen will help. If worsens or persists see your doctor. ...Read more

Chest feels very sore like I got punched or worked out ... Pain from top of my chest and the top of my back can't move from the pain ... Any ideas ?

Doctor can evaluate: A person with chest pain symptoms usually has to go to her doctor (or even to the emergency room) to be checked right away for a heart attack, UNLESS there is another convincing reason for chest pain (decided upon by talking with one's doctor). That means not waiting at home to see if it turns into a more obvious heart attack. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry". ...Read more

Symptoms are rapid heart rate, sweaty palms, rapid breathing and about 28 other symptoms. Now your body has to metabolize this bunch of stress hormones.
