Agree w Dr. Krauser: If you have the Flu hydrate well w water, herbal teas, soup or juice. Drink sufficiently to have pale to light yellow urine. You can use pain relievers like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID’s. Rest A LOT! In some situations antiviral medications (Tamiflu, Relenza, Flumadine) may be prescribed within the first couple of days of symptoms to hasten healing or they can be used after flu exposure to prevent illness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does fibromyalgia cause severe body aches, not muscle aches, but, body aches, like a bad case of the flu? Had it for 3 mos, pac said she thought it was

It can feel similar to the joint and muscle pain that comes with the flu, but with fibromyalgia, there is no evidence of active infection.

I got my flu shot this year, but i've gotten sick and my symptoms include muscle aches and fever. Is it possible I have the flu?
Yes: Yes, it is possible. Ultimately the purpose for the flu shot is not to prevent the flu, rather it is to prevent you from dying from the flu or flu related illnesses.

I just got over the flu, but have a lingering cough thats pretty harsh. My lower abdomen now hurts rite above my waist line appendix or muscle?
Common problem: It is common after a viral infection resolves, that a cough may linger. It generally resolves within 8 weeks and is called a post-viral cough (duh). To cough, you use abdominal muscles but with excessive coughing these become sore. If a fever returns, fatigue continues, productive cough or breathing difficulties develop, see a doctor. A mild pneumonia/bronchitis can follow viral infections. ...Read more
