I have severe muscle cramps, especially in my legs. I also have a slight fever and just don't feel very well. Are muscular cramps one of the flu symptoms?

Brief Answer: Slight fever,muscular cramps are signs of flu... Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Having a slight fever and general not-feeling well can be considered as flu symptoms. However, as I've noticed that you have a previous history of strep infection, I'd suggest to get checked by a physician to prevent another strep attack. Usually flu (viral) infection weakens the immune system, giving rise to bacterial infections such as Group A strep infection. I also advise to get plenty of water, rest more and take multivitamin supplementation containing vit.C and magnesium and vit.B complex to ease your symptoms. Wish fast recovery!
