Unexplained bruising all over body, fatigue, wieghtloss, headaches, loss of appitite, body aches, mild dizziness, weak legs. What going on with me?

Something of concern: We get questions about "a bruise" all the time...those are not this much of an issue:
Generalized bruising
Weight loss

The other symptoms are hard to characterize (body aches/weakness/mild dizzy) since very common and usually from minor things.

The degree of both of the concerning symptoms I cannot tell without an exam for your situation. But deep/bloody bruising worse but exam/tests regardles ...Read more

Been feeling weak and tired. Body aches. Then came down with headache, irritated sore throat, and runny nose (a cold) feel better. Still have a weak jittery feeling throughout arms and body.?

Viral syndrome: You have described a very typical viral syndrome. We call it this because we often don't know the name of the virus or how you got it, but the symptoms of fatigue and body aches are classic, as is the sore throat and headache. Feeling "jittery" is not unusual. It will resolve without antibiotics, only helpful in bacterial infections, with rest, hydration/fluid, and acetominophen/ibuprofen. ...Read more

Can it be the flu if I have headache, body aches and fatigue but no cough or fever?

Can it be the flu if I have headache, body aches and fatigue but no cough or fever?

Probable influenza: Yes, this certainly could be the 'flu' because u may have 'muted' your fever with over the counter 'cold' medicines that contain tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin/NSAIDs like motrin. It's flu season now in the Northern hemisphere and we doctors like to say "common things are common". So I would start with a flu swab-which should tell u very quickly if u have the flu, then give u antivirals to help. Call ur doc! ...Read more

May be fibromyalgia: There are lots of issues here and when your physician will look at all of these there are major topics to be evaluated. Are there tender myofascial (soft tissue) sites when you are touched? The eye

Yes: These numbers indicate that you are quite anemic. You should see your doctor or a gastroenterologist to determine if you are having any blood loss in your digestive tract. If you are not, it may be related to your monthly blood loss, if it is excessive. Regardless, you need to act on this immediately, since your blood counts are quite low. Good luck. ...Read more

I've been sick with the flu since Sat. I have no fever but have headache, body ache, a runny nose & very tired. Should I return to work tomorrow?

Maybe. Maybe not.: Nobody really knows when one person stops being contagious with influenza (with or without Tamiflu treatment). One week out from the start of the illness (one can count from the first day of fever, aches, or cough) is safe, unless a person had a more severe illness or still has a lot of cough. In a more severe case, one can wait longer, such as until 3 days after no fever nor excessive cough. ...Read more
