Hi,Rob,
You have these symptoms for 4-5 days so it seems that you might have have slight temperature so measure the temperature 2-3 times in a day,if mild temp. is there this may be flu.
You feel weak may be due to temp.
Take some tablet for bodyache and you will be alright.
If temp. persists then go for blood check up.

My legs and arms are achy and feel very heavy. I did do some yard work today, but it doesn t feel like muscle pain I usually get from lifting, raking, etc. This happens off and on and is not consistent just with yard work; what else could it be? I do have history of Factor V Leiden and MTHFR, but I don t see anything related to what I am feeling.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

One week ago, I reached for the wrong toothbrush that had been in my cabinet for a year without use. By the time I noticed, it ws too late. I immediately felt an attack in my throat and sinuses. I was already taking penicillin at the tiime for a periodontal tooth infection in prep for getting an extraction/bone graph. I got the greenish discharge and sore throat. I was traveling at the time, so when I got home I began eating green vegetables and soup remedies. My throat is still slightly sore and my back sinuses are still draining but with a clear mucous. I thought I was getting better until last night I woke up with a t-2 thru t-12 back ach pain scale of 4/5. I took Exederin which has reduced the pain to a 1 or 2. I just want to know if this is turning into something more serious. I have had no trauma to the back and I have a great bed.
