Code Red, I Need a CM Doctor to Report to this Post Stat...Bring the Chaplain.

Posted by   + Show Post
I have the flu. Well I've concluded it's the flu, started out as a minor annoying sniffle last week, went away. Returned the other day full throttle, I feel like I need to start dividing my estate up. 😷



Runny nose

Chest pains

Back pains

The worst cough ever, which leads to gagging

Shortness of breath

Headache

Hot flashes/chills

Fever of 101.7

Dizziness/faint



My dr. is still on holiday vacation, I try to avoid the E.R at all costs, but what I've bought over the counter is not working (Mucinex)



So, is this the flu, or am I about to keel over? Both?



I fear I may have to go to the ER & sit with the Muggles :(



No smart ass answers or I'll scratch you out of the running for my gif/meme collection in my will.

Sounds like a bad cold a flu is usually a higher fever but it pull be. Either way I'd check for any infections like bronchitis or something. Feel better

The flu that is going around can be the deadly one. Be careful mama and I would go see the doc if you get really bad.. Get better soon.

I have it. I think dying would be less painful.

Its a virus. You will be done in 10 days.
Take meds to control your symptoms answer wait it out.

I plan on it, this stress on my body is going to cause a Rheumatoid Arthritis flare up, I feel the tingle in my joints.

I definitely took it for granted that I very rarely get anything more than a slight cold since being an adult. Next year I'll be vaccinated.

Thanks for your well wishes.

This! Maybe go to a Med express place? I think you need to be seen.
