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.

Hello my name is Lara Lewis and am 19. This morning I woke up with a sore throat and its gotten worse as the day went by. It isn t a kind of sore throat that I am used to though. It stings from what seems like the back of my tongue all the way down my neck and I have to swallow every few seconds (I don t know why, it makes it feel a littler better though for that one second). I can t sleep because once I start to I stop swallowing for some reason my breathing slows/stops and i jerk awake in panic. I know it has only been a day but I am in Amsterdam with my friend and no family etc, so in case its something serious I want to seek help before its too late. I also feel fevery and occasionally a couple of times today my hand starting feeling the pins and needles thing randomly. I don t know if it s related though.. Thanks

I was given alfuzosin for problems with enlarged prostate. Upon taking the med, I began to experience what I thought might be flu like symptoms and went to me primary care doctor and was given and antibiotic; which I took all of and did not get any relief. I have Myasthenia Gravis and selecting an antibiotic is not so easy, but upon a second trip to my primary doctor, I was given another Rx, took all of it but seems to not get any better. At that point, I looked at possible side effects related to taking alfuzosin and found things like fever, sore throat, ear ache, pain in my chest and stopped the alfuzosin. My symptoms improved. Since I could not contact my urologist over the holiday weekend, does this sound like a reasonable course of action on my part?
