Past 14 days I've been suffering with flu like aches

Customer Question

for the past 14 days I've been suffering with flu like aches and pains, but no flu. A headache most mornings is common along with stiffness in joints and shoulders/neck. Occasional night sweats and cramps in the calves. 2 - 4 painkillers a day seem to relieve the symptoms only for them to start all over again the next day. It doesn't seem worrying enough to go to the doctor but I don't want to keep on taking painkillers. I'm not currently on any medication at all.
