Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Big headaches, hot flashes, and night sweats? Could it be the flu?

Not typical

Diarrhea
Need more detailed description of symptoms. Where are the headaches, are they constant, how severe, what relieves them, etc. Are you having fever, when and how much; sore throat, muscle aches, gastrointestinal changes (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). To what have you been exposed (sexually or otherwise). This does not necessarily sound like influenza, but need more info. See doctor.

My son just got over the flu but now he has been having excessive night sweats. Is this normal.?

Maybe

Sweating
It may be part of the healing process. Does he have fever? When fever breaks one will sweat a lot. Is appetite normal? thirst normal? If it concerns you enough to ask, it maybe worthwhile to ave him seen.

Dr. Jack Mutnick answered:

I have valley fever .Can I get a flu shot when I'm experiencing symptoms like a severe cough and night sweats?

Hold off

Cough
It would probably be safe, but why take a chance of an adverse reaction while you are obviously ill at the present time. Get it when you are feeling better or see an infectious disease specialist to determine flu vaccination

20 yr old male, low wbc 3.9, high monocytes 18, no flu symptoms, fatigue and night sweats, 102 fever, lost 3 pounds without diet in week

Still likely viral!

Infectious mono, CMV, and other viral illness could be present, other than the flu virus. The combination of low WBC, but with increased monocytes suggest a viral illness, not bacterial. However, other more serious issues,whether less likely, could cause your Sx, including systemic lupus erythematosus and related problems. If no improvement occurs in the next few days, see your doctor.

I thought I got over the flu about 5 days ago but I have had night sweats every night since. I can't get a normal nights rest. How do I cure this?

See your PCP

Influenza
Night sweats can be associated with several things from infection to elevated RBC count. You should see your PCP for blood work.

Need for evaluation

Blood
The constellation of findings and other infections listed in your profile warrants a thorough investigation. It appears that you are under the care of a physician and it would be prudent to discuss the matter with her/him at your earliest.

I've had what I believe is flu and in4th day. Have had severe night sweats on night 2 and 3. Is this common. Symptoms are cough, aching head joints?

Influenza

Joints
The symptoms you describe are classic for influenza and while people talk about a "touch" of flu it is often more like a sledge hammer. At this point I would continue to treat symptomatically with acetaminophen or ibuprofen and hopefully in a few more days you'll feel better. Next year you should get a flu shot of you didn't this year.
