Flu? Cold? How do you know when to go to the dr about it?

Recommended Posts

I started feeling lousy on Monday. I hit miserable on Tuesday. Severe sore throat, aches, headache, sneezing, runny nose.


Well, it's Friday and the sore throat is pretty much gone but I'm coughing, headache, dizzy, ear & jaw pain, fatigue, low grade fever...basically still feeling horribly miserable.


I'm not the type to run to the doctor for every little thing. Okay, I haven't been to a doctor in 6+ years. As a matter of fact it has been so long my doctor would probably have to start a new file for me or I might wind up having to brave a medi center.


So how long do you tough it out or how will I know if it's bad enough to go in?


It's probably too late for Tamiflu, right? So it is just a matter of whether it has gone bacterial. Probably not since I don't have a temp over 101?


It's different with the kids. I can just tell when they need to go.
