NFT: Anyone else have a virus they canít kick?

tbonfig : 9/7/2019 8:22 pm
Picked it up from my 18 month old on Wed. Had fever up to 104 with body aches. Did the Motrin thing and got generally better in the morning. Thought I kicked it so I didnít really rest much after doing another Motrin dose in the morning. Wrong. Got the shit kicked out of me later that day and havenít been able to recover since.

I hate going to walk ins or the ER but this is now day 4 and I canít say I feel materially better. The fever is not 104 anymore. More like 100 prob and seems to come a few hours after Motrin wears off but my body feels like I was just competing in the UFC card.

I should note that our 18 month old is also getting her 2 year molars right now so she sleeps from 8-12 then screams for an hour or two then maybe sleeps some more after that. My wife has been doing the nighttime stuff for the past week but Iím still awake, if not up and helping, when the baby gets up.

I have a separate area Iím going to try to sleep in tonight to see if a full night works but wanted to see if anyone else is suffering or if there is some bug out there Iím not aware of.
Have somewhat of a head cold.

my remedy which works 85% of the time is zinc lozenges, tons of water, throat coat tea, and saline nasal rinses every 3 hours or so. Usually kicks the worst of the symptoms in 2 days.

I had some virus for 2 weeks before I finally didn't have a sore throat. My wife had something similar for about a week, but then suffered a secondary ear infection. My kids didn't catch it at all.

Ugh. I figured if Iím still shitty Mon Iíll go to my primary but Iím always underwhelmed unless I go to a specialist for something, like my shoulder injury. I feel like they just guess and hope the process of elimination works.

I did have walking pneumonia in both lungs last year too :(
See a Dr...

My wife had something similar a few weeks ago. After 3 days of the fever she saw a Dr who treated her for a tick born illness. She was on some sort of antibiotic that almost immediately made her better. She tested negative for Lyme although it could take weeks for it to show up on tests.
These tick borne diseases have been awful this year

Several friends have had them. Incredible. My wife was sick for 6 weeks. No diagnosis. She's just starting to feel better

Around the nation, people have been getting extremely sick and ending up in the hospital with pneumonia-like symptoms, and a few have actually died, and the only common thing is that vap.

Afew poeple have even died from it.
