Is it possible to have lingering effects of flu for months?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Had flu around 2 June, took a few weeks for the initial symptoms to go. But what has lingered for more than a month and a half is this fatigue and exhastion.

It's so annoying considering I am 29, I wouldn't think it would take a toll on my body. I've done so following tests to rule out anything sinister.

The pain in my joint mainly hurts when I move that part. I've gone to the doctors multiple times as the fatigue has affected my quality of life, but tests I have come back normal. What tests have done is the following:

Blood test - CBC, cortisol, creatine, LDH - all came back normal

Chest X rays (recent)

Past tests:

Echocardiogram (while back)

Endoscopy (last year)

Colonoscopy(last year)

ECGs (while back)

All normal and I'm having an ultra sound to rule out anything like Lymphoma in my nodes. I'm tired of being tired all the time.
