Experiencing flu symptoms for over a week, how long this will last?
I have been experiencing flu symptoms for over a week and am concerned about how long this will last. I have missed 7 days of work. First 4 days I spent in bed with chills, congestion, head and body aches, cough, not eating. Then for about 3 days continued congestion, productive cough, chills/sweats. Still very sick but not as sick as the first 4 days. I now feel worse again past 2 days and this morning. Cough worse, headache, chest congestion, and fatigue today. No difficulty breathing. I have not been in to see my physician. Clinic is overloaded and i have no insurance. We are treating with rest, fluids and cold/cough medicine. Initially was told duration could be 1-2 weeks. Wondering what to expect next!! Because I’m not getting better, I’m getting worse.
