Help...I have been suffering every fall through winter with flu like symptoms that never go beyond symptoms...these consist of: nagging headache (not severe) in temples, post nasal drip, sometimes low grade fever, scratchy throat, fatigue, slight muscle fatigue..My allergist says it's not allergies and my GP says its a virus. This happens to me for 3 or 4 days then goes away and reappears by the next week or so. I have narrowed it down I think to weather change but I need to treat it soon as possible. Help!!!

  • Get some Eucalyptus oil. 100% if possible - not diluted.Put it where you will inhale it each night. For example, put a little on each end of your pillow.Use it every time you have the first sign of a flu, and continue until well.Do all of those natural things which promote good immunity. For example, have a good diet, avoid sugar, keep warm, etc.

  • With this occuring during the seasons that you spend more time inside. It makes me wonder if your home might have carbon monoxide in the air. Usually a blocked vent from the furnace. Or excessively dirty/ blocked chimneys or flutes if you have a wood burning stove or fireplace. You can buy a simple Carbon monoxide detector where you would buy a fire detector. See the signs of it here ----> http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/c/carbon_monoxide_poisoning/signs.htm

  • I know they said it wasn't allergies, but if it happens at the same time every year, its obvious it is some type of allergy, possibly seasonal. Monitor which plants are blooming & putting out pollen at the times you have these attacks or monitor your activity and environment change when it happens & you should likely find a common denominator. If you know when its going to happen every year, talk to your doctor abt starting a certain allergy medication that you start a couple of weeks prior to the expected reaction and you can stop the drug when you know the risk is over/done with. You can do this every year at the expected time& easily prevent these flareups from ever occuring. Allergies are sometimes trial & error with treatments, so hey, its worth a try, if it doesn't work, move on, try something else. But don't rule out an allergy yet, especially if you've never tried allergy prevention meds (before exposure) or allergy treatment meds post exposure. Hope this helps, I'll pray for you!
