Feel fluey?

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hey guys.. I feel like I am on the way to recovery.. but I often feel fluey (mild). Is this something that any of you have experienced? It’s not debilitating but it’s just a constant reminder I’m not 100%... like a mild flu.

    Yeah I seem to go through feeling all hot and bothered... Then feel fine.. I put it down to anxiety as Ive suffered from it for years. It's hayfever season here in UK and that usually makes my head feel inflated haha. My muscle aches are still quite prominent in my legs, I'm going to go to the doctor's about it cos now I'm starting to think it's all back related as I have really poor posture to start off with. You'll get there!!!

    Hi Van,

    Most definitely I felt this like a lot during the virus, just all achy and sore with the constant low grade running fever. Just want to reassure you that these feelings do go away completely, and even though it may seem things are only partially better right now, they do keep improving until you feel completely better, even if it takes a bit longer than had hoped at first.

    Thinking about you and hoping for a settled weekend and start to the week.

    Hi Van,

    The story of my life, it lasted a few months after I started feeling better, it has lifted though. If I get overtired or have a virus, it seems to come back.

    Hi Van,

    +1 for also feeling on and off like I have the flu - I also get elevated temps with it. Hope you are back to 100 soon!

    Definitely! Both of us have the same exact timeline (feeling off in October-ish and early November diagnosis). Since mid-April, I've been going through mini-cycles of relapses and remissions. It's very annoying, but hopefully it's all on par with the recovery timeline.

    PS - I remember your post for 2 weeks or so ago where you mentioned that you were doing really well and I responded that so was I, but I had experienced my first mini-crash in a long time. Seems like you're experiencing yours now smile. Our timelines are very similar.

      Hi!

      Yes, I remember your posts. Glad to hear things are generally looking up, but sorry about your mini crash. I know they are so frustrating... but take heart that they are getting less intense and don't leave us wiped for weeks like it used to. That's what keeps me going. 

      Curious that my symptoms (sore throat, achey joints) seem to get worse when I am in spaces with air conditioning. I need to call a service technician to make sure the air conditioning is clean and not pumping in mold or allergens?!

    I'm on month 8 of Mono and came here specifically because of the miserable flu-like symptoms I've had the last few days. I had similar symptoms when my Mono onset. Then, 4 months in when I thought I was close to recovery, it started all over again. Now, it seems to be the same thing again. Really feeling defeated by this.

      Hang in there Kris, it took me about 10 months to start to see a major turning point. I thought it would never come but it did thanks to God's help. It is normal for it to go on for this long with these horrible symptoms and then for there to be a real turning point and go on to make full recovery. You will get through this and will feel better again Kris, truly you will I 100% believe that - hang in there and thinking about you.

      Hi Kris,

      This is exactly what happened to me, I didn't turn the corner for 11 months.

      The good days I would think the immune system is starting to recognize and fight the virus, but it doesn't give up easily and over the last year or so on the forum the ups and downs of this are a very common theme.
