Long Lasting Flu Symptoms. I Am Still Sick After A Month. I Am Told It Can’t Be The Flu.
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?
You posted this quite a long time ago, but I was wondering if you ended up with a diagnosis and effective treatment plan. I would love to hear about it. It does sound like you could have ended up with complications from the flu and, hopefully, you found a doctor who listened carefully to you regarding your symptoms. The flu can lead to pneumonia or bronchitis or other secondary concerns.
Of course only a medical doctor can make diagnoses, and you should always seek medical care if something lingers for more than a week to ten days.
I do hope all is well!
I have a few articles dealing with the flu that might interest you.
