Have any of you had the flu this season?
I am on day 4 of horrible aches, fever, chills, having to pop Motrin and Tylenol every few hours, and horrible cold symptoms. It came on extremely suddenly on the last night of our trip; I had to come home from dinner early and that entire night I was miserable - aching, freezing, shaking, and the next day the cold symptoms were in full swing - deep cough, stuffy nose, sore throat, sinus pain, mucus, the whole nine yards. Of course we traveled all day Saturday and then yesterday I just rested all day thinking surely it would go away. (That's how I was able to get those blog posts done.)
Woke up today and STILL have a fever and am still aching. I also have what looks like a terrible red viral rash all over my arms and legs that itches like crazy. So do I have the flu? Do I have Lyme disease? Do I have Disney resort bed bugs? Can someone please help me out here.
I am not sure I can take Tamiflu while nursing...? Not sure I even want to at this point but if my family needs to get on something to prevent this, I definitely want to get it sooner than later!
If you've had the flu please let me know if this sounds like it...
Thank you - and prayers for a quick recovery please!!! Chad had to go back to work today and so I'm home alone with all the kiddos. At least it's a rainy day! Good excuse for a movie marathon, right?
