I have cold like symptoms and I feel nauseous and have a slight fever and have body aches. Could it be the flu?

Possible: It is flu season, and your symptoms are consistent. Even if it is, don't worry. The flu is usually not dangerous unless you are an infant or someone over 90. There is no treatment, and no cure. Just rest and drink lots of fluids, and you should recover just fine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have a headache, along with fever like symptoms, no mucus, my body aches, dizziness, no appetite, what's wrong with me?

Likely viral illness: Most frequent infections encounter by human are viral and very few have specific treatments--herpes, hiv, hepatitis b/c, and maybe cytomegalovirus--the vast majority/remainder of illnesses cannot be treated, just treating the symptoms. Fever/body aches are often relieved by motrin/tylenol etc...
If headaches/sensitivity to light, nausea/vomitting occur, should get treatment. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I am suffering from flu like symptoms-body aches, chills, fever, weakness-but haven't thrown up at all. What am I sick with?

Could be flu: The flu does not always contribute to nausea and vomiting. A follow-up visit to the md to see if you have the flu will put your mind at ease and allow you to rest. If it is a viral infection, fluids and lots of rest over the next week is what your body will need to recover. ...Read more

Flu vs Flu-like: Hi, Thank you for your question.

Any gas appliances?: It could be the flu or many other kinds of infection however since the symptoms began right after moving to a new house the possiblity of carbon monoxide poisoning should be considered.

Can you have the flu without respiratory symptoms? (Have body aches, chills, and fever instead)

Can you have the flu without respiratory symptoms? (Have body aches, chills, and fever instead)

Possible, unlikely: It is unusual to have influenza without cough and often other respiratory symptoms, e.g. sore throat. It could happen, but any number of other medical conditions probably are more likely. Such symptoms can be very serious: check with a doctor ASAP, especially if fever is high or chills continue. Good luck! ...Read more

Cough w/ phlegm: Could be you had viral infection and have superimposed bacterial infection, could be post infectious reactive airways when you lie down it is worse because you are compressing lungs. Keep head of bed at 25-45% with pillow under mattress. May need inhaler, also may need antibiotics. Antihistamines before bed may also assist as may have post nasal drip f/u w/doc ...Read more

Intermittent fever of 101, body aches, and moderate pain in groin lymph nodes for 3 days. No other symptoms. Does this sound like a virus?

Intermittent fever of 101, body aches, and moderate pain in groin lymph nodes for 3 days. No other symptoms. Does this sound like a virus?

Yes and no: The first part of your description sounds like a classic viral syndrome: fever, body aches, but moderate pain in the groin (inguinal) lymph nodes could point to a more serious bacterial infection. I would recommend seeing your gynecologist or primary care provider to determine why you have the lymph node swelling. It may be viral, but it would be safer to get a physical exam to be sure. ...Read more

22 mo old daughter with sudden fever of 102. No symptoms other than body aches and excessive gas. Fever lasted less than 24hrs. Still has gas.?

Fever and flatus: Flatus (gas) is caused by all kinds of things the most likely of which is swallowed air due to excessive crying. Give this time and as long as she is having no other issues, let this resolve on its own. There is really not much else that can and needs to be done unless there is something else going on that you have not mentioned. ...Read more

Just wondering what the symptoms might be if you have carbon monoxide poising? If I do have how long should I wait to see a doct I have had a fever headache body aches my chest has been really tight and hurts to cough and breath deep.

Viral cold, probably: The symptoms you describe are most probably a viral respiratory infection, even the real flu (influenza). See a physician, to make sure it is not anything more serious. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a "silent killer", usually causing very little symptoms before killing the patient; there may be fatigue and headache, but none of the symptoms you describe. ...Read more

My mom, aged 72, has cyclical symptoms that occur every 2 months: chills, fever, body aches, vomiting. Blood work, other tests all come up normal?

Cyclical disease: I would want to know if it was exactly 2 months at a time -and for how long she was experiencing this. There is something called cyclical neutropenia, but it's very rare. I think she needs to be evaluated when she's actually sick -because when in recovery you may not identify the cause. I think your mom needs a thorough evaluation - and it may be time for that second opinion to shed light on this. ...Read more
