I have the flu. Well I've concluded it's the flu, started out as a minor annoying sniffle last week, went away. Returned the other day full throttle, I feel like I need to start dividing my estate up. 😷



Runny nose

Chest pains

Back pains

The worst cough ever, which leads to gagging

Shortness of breath

Headache

Hot flashes/chills

Fever of 101.7

Dizziness/faint



My dr. is still on holiday vacation, I try to avoid the E.R at all costs, but what I've bought over the counter is not working (Mucinex)



So, is this the flu, or am I about to keel over? Both?



I fear I may have to go to the ER & sit with the Muggles :(



No smart ass answers or I'll scratch you out of the running for my gif/meme collection in my will.

    When I had the flu a few years ago my doctor told me to take Tylenol . She said to bring the fever down and help with aches. And just wait it out. Feel better soon.

    Mid back, up to nape of my neck

    It's like a dull pain, then a ringing pain, then sharp.

    Sounds like the flu
    There is nothing the doctor can do just drink liquids eat the b.r.a.t. diet and rest

    ummm, I would say flu. since the flu is a virus wouldn't they just send you home and tell you to get lots of rest and drink lots of water? sounds like a waste of time suffering around the muggles if you ask me

    I hear great things about this, I'll have my neighbor get it on her way in.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

     I have exactly the same symptoms when I went to the Urgent Care yesterday and was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.  I feel you with respect to the cough - took my third dose of the antibiotics this morning and due for my fourth in about an hour, and it still hits from time to time, and once you get started you can't stop and you cough so hard you gag and your eyes water.  It's awful. 

    Hope you feel better soon.

    When women say they didn't know they were pregnant, they thought they had the flu...

    They're lying. Absolutely lying.

    Wrong comparison.

    Never at any point of my three pregnancies did I feel like someone forgot they double parked a 14 wheeler on me.

    I have it. I think dying would be less painful.

    Oh, ok.  It definitely sounds like a pulled muscle.  If the back pain last longer than the cough definitely go and get an x-ray.

    Lol I know how you feel... when I'm not sweating, I'm shivering. My lungs feel like water is filling them and I keep spitting up this foam after every coughing session.

    I'd rather be hit by a bus. I can barely walk without almost falling over.

    But I slept like 14 hours today, so sadly I am awake and in a ton of pain :(
