I have the flu and I am so sore, i can't move?

I have the flu and I am so sore, i can't move?

Myalgia...: Myalgia, or muscle pain, is common with influenza. Taking ibuprofen, drinking plenty of fluids, and resting are the best ways to get over the flu and feel better. If your symptoms just started (<24 hours ago) and you actually were shown to be positive for influenza type a, your doc could prescribe you tamiflu, (oseltamivir) which would help you get over things a little faster. Otherwise, rest up. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, you can take a home urine pregnancy test now. If it is negative, and you sitll have not had your period in 7 days, recommend that you repeat the pregnancy test.

Hi the last 2 weeks everytime i eat i have been sick. My stomach is bloated  i am so tired and havent any enpergy. Could it be signs of being pregnant?

Yes: Nausea after eating, bloating, and fatigue can be signs of pregnancy but they are very non-specific symptoms and can also be signs of a good many other things. If you have been having unprotected intercourse,your period is late or abnormal, and you are concerned, check a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days to be sure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ok I am scared i might be pregnant and I have the meirana IUD in and I have been having symptoms of pregnancy but the home tests are reading neg!?

Neg test = not preg: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I recently got off the depo 2months ago and I slept with someone and now is having symptoms of pregnancy. Can I get pregnant that quick???

Possible: If you mean you got off DepoProvera two months ago and it's been five months since your last injection, then pregnancy is possible. DepoProvera may last longer than three months, but the standard protocol is an injection every ninety days. After ninety days, the effectiveness may be gone and pregnancy is possible. Hope this helps. ...Read more
