I have the flu should I worry
 about my extreme fatigue and tiredness? I have no fever or pain no longer hardly a cough and I'm eating. This is day 3

In any case, take it easy, drink fluids plus and take tylenol (acetaminophen) for headache, eat as you can with healthy foods, take vitamins and you will recover completely. ...Read more

I'm having extreme fatigue for the past 3 days same time I started topical hydrocortisone. Can extreme tiredness and shortness of breath be a side e?

Not typically: It is not a typical side effect. Especially if it is only being used for three days. Hydrocortisone cream can eventually cause this if used in large amounts for long periods of time.

Neither can account for the leg weakness since it started before you took Prilosec. Call you doctor again and get a referral if indicated. ...Read more

Extremely low: Fatigue has so many possible causes - but cancer in a 22 year old is extremely unlikely. Do you take vitamins? Eat well? Exercise? Other medical problems? So many possibilities, but cancer is very very unlikely. Check with your pcp for a checkup. Good luck. ...Read more
