Flu-like symptoms

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello ladies,

For the past few days I've been feeling like I've got some sort of bug. It started Sunday evening with a sore throat. Then it progressed into Monday morning with aches and stiffness in my neck and legs, stuffy nose and head. But as the day went on the feeling was kind of hitting me off and on. Today when I woke up it was the same thing, the only difference is that the symptoms kind of dissipated as the morning progressed but I can still feel that flu-like/cold feeling but only subtly. I don't know if any of this makes sense? 🤷‍♀️

    Hello, IF you do not have a fever...than it probably is not the flu. I get allergies around this time...leaves falling, more mold spores in the air. Cold like symptoms, achey neck, scratchy throat, sniffles. I also had strep twice...but, my throat was like swallowing glass when I swallowed. Sounds like allergies or a cold...our immunity is just not the same anymore!
