I've got some serious aches, it feels like I've run a marathon my arms, legs, fingers (?), neck and chest muscles/ joints are so sore. No temperature, checked with an ear thermometer and got 36.8 in one ear and 37.9 in the other hmmconfused I'm off work tomorrow and I think I'll be staying in bed! I do have uti type symptoms started earlier and then the aches set in. I just feel rotten and want a pity party anyone want to join?

Commiserations! I was like this last week, plus hideous sinus headache, snot tsunami and a cough. Nothing works except rest really.

Oh that’s how I feel. I feel awful and so achy.

And tomorrow I’m supposed to be going away with my daughter for a long weekend sad

Yes so shit, I feel like crying.

I had 3 pretty awful and uncomfortable days with it then I started to recover.
Keep yourselves dosed with painkillers and get plenty of rest.

Flu is horrific, I dread it having had it at least four times in my life.
It will pass but take it easy, don't go back to work too soon.

flowers brew Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest. Hope you are soon feeling much better.

Oh God I empathise. This hit me out of nowhere and I'm properly floored. I can't get my temp below 38 and today I feel like I'm melting. Day 3 now. I'm hoping it disappears as fast as it arrived.

Ohhhh me too. Day 3 for me and feeling a tiny bit more human but only a tiny bit. Did a couple of hours of work (in bed, on laptop, not down t'pit) and I am exhausted!

Me too!! Cold and achey. No temp though.

IanHislopForPm Fri 06-Mar-20 14:04:11

I've been in bed all day. I have no plans on getting up any time soon sad

Sounds like the onset of flu.
It's rubbish.

Paracetamol, hydration, snacks, rest.

Get well soon

DH has been in to wake me up to drink some water. Temp finally seems settled, just sore everywhere. Can't get up sore.

DP and I both had this during the week, my mum and sister also had it. Honestly my body feels like its been hit by a car, I couldn't get out of bed yesterday. Luckily it seems to be relatively short lived as I feel fragile today but able to get things done.

There is a virus going about (not Corona). My sister's had it in both ears which have been treated with antibiotics.

Two nights ago my lb also started with the same thing; sore ear, flu symptoms, high temp and some vomiting. He is on the mend today tho. Hopefully it won't last too long, just try and get as much rest as possible flowers

Oh man. My temperature has returned and isn't shifting. I feel like I'm going to evaporate. I'm quietly waiting for tomorrow in the vain hope this just gives up on day 4.
