Is this a virus or just stress?

My dh has been home from work for the last two days and says he is not going in tomorow either. This is sooooo unlike him. He is never off sick. I think he might have taken a sick day about 3 years ago!

His main symptom is that he is extremely tired. He says that walking across the room makes him exhausted. He has no other obvious symtpoms. However, we have a huge amount of stress in our lives at home and at his work right now. I have asked him if he thinks it is some sort of depression and he says he doesn't think so. He certainly feels stress though.

Are there any virus's that are like this?

There probably are virus's that make you feel exhausted. But so does stress.

Give it a couple of days, watching to see if symptoms get worse or better.

If not getting better after two days I would book an app with the doc
