I was diagnosed with a strain of swine flu and I am still experiencing high fever and nausea on and off during the day. Is this a side effect of meds Or should I get a follow up consult?
Mgt. If you have chills, shortness of breath or cough, you may have a lung infection. Secondary bacterial illness is one complication of the flu.
Something. Influenza doesn't by itself keep giving fever for more than a few days. But pneumonia often occurs after flu.
Yes. Get a follow up consult. Evaluation will determine if you have developed any complications of the FLu. Remain adequately hydrated.
