How long ago. I had normal flu about three years ago, and I remember that kept coming and going for about a month.

Poor you, hope you feel better soon smile

This does prove that the Daily Mail etc are really hyping up this swine flu thingo though, doesn't it? - how many people are being told that they have swine flu when they either have a cold, seasonal flu or other virus with similar symptoms?

Did you take Tamiflu last time?

My boys have had it in dribs and drabs like that too Riv, poor ds4 ewas in a right old mess last night screaming.

GP says it's as much post viral reaction from the immune system and being very run down indeed

Flu can knock you back for months sometimes. Your immune system's taken a battering and people can suffer post-virally for a long time afterwards. You need to concentrate on boosting your immune system long term.

In my experience that's the evil thing about flu, not the initial bout of it, but the fact that it can crap up your system and make you run down and more likely to catch every other virus going round for a long time afterwards.

yeah celery that's what I've found with our flu, we all wiped out especially me, bit depressing but getting better each week as a family!
