Could certainly be: The flu, or another virus. I would recommend you call his pediatrician and have him seen. Meanwhile, make sure he's drinking plenty of fluids and if he has no medical contraindication, you can give him Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin or Advil for the fever, if he's uncomfortable. ...Read more

I had a flu shot yesterday.  4 hours later struck with extreme dizziness and sweating.  Is that normal?

Maybe: Dizziness and sweating are very vague symptoms with many causes. You should check with your doctor. Flu shots have many proteins (antigens) so that your body will produce antibodies and protect you from the flu. This response includes cytokines, a chemical messenger that can cause symptoms in sensitive people. However, they still should get the vaccine because influenza is much worse. ...Read more

Fever breaking: It is normal to sweat when fever breaks. Take it easy for a couple of days. Drink enough fluids. Once the major symptoms have resolved start your regular activities.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I have severe cold, cough, sweating alot, slight fever of about 100-101 and body pain...is there a chance that I have swine flue or just normal flu?

Mgt: The swine flu is a type of influenza or flu infection, and since there is an outbreak in India, it may be possible. Your symptoms are indicative of a flu or flu like illness. If you are early in the course, Tamiflu (oseltamivir) may be started.
If the cough worsens or persists, antibiotics may be needed.

Sinus infection w green snot. I feel like I have the flu. Or do I have the flu. Woke up sweating past two night s just to drag thru the day.  Thanks?

You may have both: A 2-day episode of sweating at night sounds like a viral upper respiratory tract infection. Green nasal discharge may be the start of a viral rhino-sinusitis. The general rule is that if you are getting worse after 5 days, an antibiotic is appropriate, and if you are not better in 10 days, an antibiotic should be considered. Bottom line is if not better after 5 days see your physician. ...Read more

Functional dyspepsia: These are the sympoms of functional dyspepsia like gastritis, GERD. These are not the sympoms of gastroenteritis including irritable bowel syndrome.

I keep having episodes of sweating do much it goes through to my jeans, muscle aches, heart racing and flu like symptoms that come and go?

Uncertain: These type of sweats suggest that you may have an underlying infection of some sort. This is the first thing I would recommend your physician check for. There are occasional metabolic syndromes to consider as they can also cause sweating. I would start with your physician and if necessary have you see a specialist infectious disease. ...Read more

Sneezing, runny nose, dizzy, sweating, headache, tired, achey., a clear mucus, is this cold or flu been like this for 5 days. What will help?

High fever???: Flu usually presents with the symptoms you mention PLUS a high fever initially at least! You may have ordinary Rotovirus (common cold) or MILD flue (made mild my partial protection from Flu vaccine)
In any case Aspirin/Fluids/Rest are the best sources of comfort (plus or minus a decongestive such as Sudafed)

Hope this helps
