Did the dr just figure it for a virus that has to run its course or did he have other suggestions? Yours sounds very influenza- like.
That was his suspicion (a weird flu) so he just said the usual, rest fluids and treat the symptoms on a individual basis. Some people got secondary infections that were suspected bacterial but swabbed negative for strep (me included). It was probably one of the longest ongoing illnesses I've ever had and it just kept changing so were were all baffled. Thank goodness it's gone!
