For the first time in nearly a week, I didn't wake up during the night drenched in sweat, feeling like I was in a sauna and suffocating from the heat, so think the fever has (fingers crossed) finally gone. I still feel like I've been run over by a truck though, and all the other symptoms are still there. Got up, showered and dressed this morning, even helped husband prepare veg for dinner....whether I eat much of it later remains to be seen, appetite is still coming and going. It's odd, often I have no appetite at all, then sometimes I'm suddenly ravenous. Going back to bed now, overwhelmingly tired again.
Jill and Joy, to answer your questions - yes we had the flu jabs a month ago. Have had them for years and never had any reactions other than a mild arm ache or feeling a bit tired. I don't think it's a reaction to the jab - too long ago. I do think it's the flu - there are many different strains of flu and each year's vaccine only protects against the 3 or 4 strains the scientists reckon will be most prevalent this year. Well, as far as I'm aware.
