Week after flu still stuffy runny nose with clear mucus. Barely a cough with clear mucus if any. Is this the flu or something else? Nof fever or aches

Possible residual sx. This could still be residual symptoms from the virus. The cough could last up to 6 weeks after. But it is always possible that you are getting some other virus or do you have some allergies causing nasal congestion?

Possible flu. Please get tested with a nasal swab for influenza. You have to take Tamiflu within 48 hours of onset for it to be effective. Read more...
Probably a virus. It is not yet flu season (no reported cases yet), so you symptoms are most likely viral. I would recommend ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain and fever. Most cases of strep throat respond to the initial course of antibiotics. However, if the sore throat does not improve in 3 days or the fever lasts longer than 5 days, you should see your doctor.

Sounds like it. Sure sounds like influenza. First, if you didn't receive a flu vaccine, it raises the possibility. There is a test for influenza, so if you're worried about other possibilities, you should have that done. However, even tamiflu, (oseltamivir) an antiviral drug, won't do much to curtail the symptoms. Contact your doc if you think there may be more to this, like pneumonia or asthma. Read more...

Is it possible to have the flu without a fever, I keep sneezing have a sore throat, itchy eye, dry cough, back pain, headach & runny nose?

Mgt. From your description, another possible cause is an allergic reaction. I would recommend a dose of an over the counter antihistamine to assess if it helps. Have you had your flu vaccination? If not, I would recommend it unless otherwise contraindicated. Read more...
