Default Flu

I don't wish this on anyone. I haven't had the flu in like 10 years at least it seems.

Our whole family has been feeling like ass for a few days. Last night I took my wife to the ER due to spltting headache. Turns out she was dehydrated and they confirmed that she has the flu.

Sorry to hear. I have heard the flu vaccine is even less helpful this year because of the mutations of the virus. Lucky so far, but nobody in my family has gotten it...yet.

I hear you can get the flu by reading a thread about the flu.

Default Re: Flu

it has been 6 weeks and I still have a bit of a cough. My pulmonologist read me the riot act yesterday. Said that I should have called and she would have had Tamiflu delivered. At least I had my emergency pack of antibiotics and steroids on hand. The CDC has issued a directive that to not even bother with testing. Just give Tamiflu immediately. Healthy young people are being killed. The flu shot is only about 10% effective against this strain but can lessen the severity. The good/bad news is that 2 other strains are now beginning to circulate. However the shot matches up much better against these. I am restricted from going to the gym, movies,and other such gatherings. Boredom is beginning to set in.

Default Re: Flu

I got it last Monday Morning. I had a flu shot about 4-5 weeks earlier as I am high risk with Asthma. I missed a week of work, but am now nearly back to 80% or so. I was lucky it didn't get into my chest too much. Just the irritating cough, big time fatigue, fever...I drank water the whole time. Started eating again after the first few days and that was a difference maker. Water, food, rest, repeat.

I've had two light touches of something in 2 weeks and so far have beaten them back.

I've eaten a bunch of these. I really believe they help:

I got a Flu shot but only last week. It takes 2 weeks for it to be full strength. Too late.

I'm just getting over a bad cold - not the flu. I drank a lot of vitamin water during the 'wet' phase. I'd suggest that or Gatorade (if you can tolerate the saltiness) instead of plain water. You definitely need to hydrate, though.

I was adding liquid vitamins to the water once a day and taking a multi twice a day. Why not! I seemed to weather the storm OK, just sucked I missed 4 days of work. Gotta stay hydrated. with all the water I consumed, I still woke up at night dehydrated. keep your drink of choice close to you at night.

A report on NPR said the shot was formulated for the H1 strain of influenza but the prominent strain this season was identified as H3N2. They said the flu shot would only be 10-30% effective vs that type.

You essentially made expensive pee, but if it made you "feel" like you were feeling better, than its worth it I guess?

Now the flu nose spray - as my MD told me - is a different matter...not dead virus but live...ugh.

*edit - And my better 9/10ths is a school nurse - tons of flu and 2 different sets of symptoms.
1 - fever and vomiting = everywhere.
2 - no fever/nausea but a killer headache... flu sucks.

I think they have stopped using the nasal spray, it was much less effective than the trials indicated it would be. While it was "live" it was attenuated to the point that it was not really very dangerous to anybody with a "normal" immune system.

Thanks for the info - it's what my kids used to get - afraid of needles and all. Kind of freaked me out when my doc told me the diff at the time...

Not a problem, the nasal spray was a lot easier in terms of people, not just kids, being afraid of needles etc.
