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.
