    Anyone else had it? Did you go to the Dr.? What did the Dr. prescribe? How long did it last?

    Seems I picked this thing up when I took my Mom to the Dr. and the hospital on Friday. Started out with my whole body hurting and a bad headache. Last night I was chilling and then I would burn up. Been taking Mucinex DM and mild pain pills for the aches and pains. Right now I'm feeling pretty miserable. Any suggestions would be welcome. I just read in the paper this afternoon that the flu had hit this area, so that's my luck.

    My brother had some Nasty stuff last week. IT looks like we may have some of it up here in MN.
    take care.

    Well as you know I've had it for over 2 weeks now,can't seem to get over the crap. I haven't gone to the Dr.for it and won't go,I have no desire to make him richer. Hope you feel better soon.

    It's the worst bug I've had in years, Tiffany came down with it a few days before me and passed it along. No doctor visit, but lots of Nyquil and Dayquil. I was down pretty hard for 4 days, then the chills and stuff broke and I started improving. Missed 1 day of work, but I probably should have taken about four off. It was day 7 (yesterday) before I felt like doing things again. I hope you start the upswing pretty soon :eek:

    Cheryl, sorry to hear your down with the flu. My teenage son got it real bad, however, he went to the doc on day two of feelin' like he was dying.
    Doc gave him : Azithromycin Tablets ( a full course of anitibiotic therapy in just 5 doses). He was feelin' better after the 2nd. day of pills. 6 days later he's up and gone again.

    Oh no, sorry to hear you got it! I had it, and took medicine within the first day of it and got better in about 3 days.
