Sounds nasty - There seems to be a lot of chest / throat things going round at the mo. Sounds like some sort of viral thing (although I'm no nurse !)

Flu? Real flu does confine you to your bed.

nickola, I had a bug like this last year - dh was working away from home at the time. My temp went up to 102 and I couldn't get out of bed on my own. My neighbours had to look after the dds until dh came back (he was working at the other end of the country and had to pack in his job early). It took me 2 weeks to recover. However it was just a virus that got a stranglehold (I was quite run down before I got it) - there was nothing GP could give me.

flu , how long before it goes

Depens how fit you were before you got it and what strain you have. It is common to wipe you out for a week though.

Though TBH, I am surprised the dr didn't mention it if he/she saw hw ill you were. They would know if there was flu going round your area.

Sounds like you need to go to bed and have some TLC.
