Aching body for weeks...what's up?

I've had what feels like a mild cold for weeks now. Aching body, headaches, sneezy. Sometimes the aching is quite bad, especially if I've been sitting for a while, and my ribs and legs get sore. Does this sound like some kind of deficiency? My diet is quite good, I'm getting lots of sleep and am not an old gimmer quite yet!

Any rash?

No rash, no other symptoms at all confused

I just feel like I've been to the gym everyday and have a head cold at the same time!

Might be worth getting Vitamin D levels tested.

Could also be a lingering virus or a sinus infection.

Hmm, I dont have a sweaty head nor throbbing bone pain. It's more like the ache you get if you overdo the alcohol or the gym! I think virus might be to blame...I'm fighting something off and refusing to malinger.

I do feel a bit like that with low vit D. But also with sinus stuff.

It's probably not malingering. You probably need a bit of rest to shake it off. Take it easy. Don't make me get stern grin
