I went down with a virus 2 months ago - very achy muscles, fever and sore throat, but no upper respiratory tract infection. Also nausea and loss of appetite. The first week didn't feel so bad and I went into work. Then I took 3 weeks off as the symptoms worsened. I improved somewhat and went back into work for 4 weeks, but now have admitted defeat and am back off sick. Worrying symptoms such as pins and needles pain all over, muscle aches and glands up in my throat. I have enjoyed good health for some years (10, excluding a bad bout of flu in 2015 which lasted 9 weeks), so this is extremely worrying. I started a new very demanding job in the summer and realised quite quickly that I probably wasn't really suited to it and had taken on too much. I pushed on hoping I would just take time to settle in, but I have now made the decision to resign. Trying to carry on in a job which hasn't suited me won't have helped my recovery, and I have now resolved to rest until I am better. However, I am plagued by thoughts that the dreaded M.E. is back. Has anyone else had a bad virus already this winter which is taking weeks to shift? Any reassurance would be gratefully received. Thank you.
