Hi there,
I've been feeling unwell since Thursday. I have body aches and pains, mainly in my back and neck. Body shivers but my head is boiling. A bad throat and chest with a cough. Feeling nausea, bad head and temperature of 38.7. Just wondering if you feel that I need to seek medication attention? Any advice would be great. Katie p.s I am 31 years old, very fit and healthy and exercise regularly
HelloThis sounds like flu.Yes, if you see a doctor, tamiflu can be started, although it is getting late do to this...within two days usually.However, I would have an exam and if flu [which can be confirmed with labs] give it a try. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
