I am curious if anyone else has been sick for a while with what the doctor just diagnosed as a virus. It did start with a severe sore throat, but that has been gone for quite some time. My husband had it too, and he was diagnosed with Strep. I got a sore throat next, figured I must have strep too, so I took a 10 day supply of antibiotics. But now, nearly 8 days later, I still feel sick - and felt my sickest this past weekend, stayed in bed both days. I have an achy head, achy neck, low energy (lethargy), fever, flushing, body aches, and can sleep for up to 12 hours a day. I feel tired and sick. It is going on two weeks tomorrow. My sense of well being goes up and then down again. One day I feel good enough to work, and then the next I feel wiped out, like I have the flu. What is going around? Could this be more than a virus? Doc said all my vitals were normal, no swollen lymph glands, and that I should wait another week to get a blood test. Anyone else experiencing this so called virus?:confused:
