    What causes sweating and chills when you're sick?

    I have had the following symptoms for a month: chills, occasional dripping nose, congestion of respiratory tract and nose. Bad head pains affecting my eye, occasional sweating and flu feeling. I was told that I was not contagious after so long. I am exhausted, and I have trouble breathing at times. I am told by the CLSC I cannot be sick for so long! I am.  Can anyone enlighten me please?

    Could be a sinus infection or some complication from having the flu. I was sick for a month with what I thought was the flu but found out I had bronchitis from having the flu, the actual flu didn't last as long but sure felt like I still had it. Either way, you should see your doctor if it persists past a week (don't wait as long as I did!) and if it was your doctor who told you that you were not contagious but didn't tell you what was wrong then I would suggest a different doctor!

    My son had all those systems and he was very contagious.  He tested positive for the H1N1
