flu->walking pneumonia/resp. infection -> weeks of fatigue(extreme)

Has anyone had or heard of someone who has had severe fatigue after going through the flu (and possible a resperatory infection after that). I am experiencing extreme fatigue, muscle aches/spasms/pain and lightheadedness for 7 weeks since going through flu and 2 weeks of walking pneumonia (treated after the 2 weeks with Zpack/azithromycin.. cleared lungs up). I am not talking about feeling tired, but rather extreme fatigue (e.g. Id force myself up in the morning and drive somewhere and by the end of the ride Id be so tired that Id have to take a long rest right there in drivers seat). The problem with these symtoms is convicing my doctor that I am really really fatigued not just the general fatigue after sickness.

Re: flu->walking pneumonia/resp. infection -> weeks of fatigue(extreme)

Hi
I am going into week 5 with flu symptoms. After visiting the doctors several times he says i have post viral fatigue. To me it still feels like I have the worst flu in the world and i have only been out of bed in the last few weeks to make a drink and have something to eat. I am with you on the terrible fatigue, i have to lie down after everything i do because i am so exhausted. My muscles ache all the time which is starting to make me feel quiet sick. I am on max pain killers everyday to try and ease the pain and i have just read a very depressing book about chronic fatique and how it affects the body for a very long time. I hope to god that this is going to pass and just the after effects of the flu. Let me know if you are any better or have come up with some miracle cure. Its very damm frustrating!!!
