Can it be a infection?

I know i don't have a high temperature, but I seem to feel weak this morning. And the days before this i had a cough for a week with mucus coming up which i still have till this day and random sneezes for no reason. My left and right arm kind ache left side maybe the chest or lung feels different.

Re: Can it be a infection?

There is a weird virus and flu going around. I know many....many folks who keep getting it over and over plus it takes weeks to get rid of. As long as you don't have a fever I would just try and rest as much as possible and definately drink a lot of fluids to keep hydrated. If it's viral there isn't much they can do for it as antibiotics will not help anything viral.

Feel better soon....JJ...

Re: Can it be a infection?

If it is just viral with no fever then they will have you rest..drink fluids etc. If they do a CBC blood count and your white blood cells are higher then normal, they will consider it an infection and possibly put you on an antibiotic. Most times even a virus will raise your temperature some, but they usually know the difference between viral and a true infection..

Seeing you have a cough they can examine you to see if your lungs are clear, if so, then it is probably viral. If your not getting better have it checked.

Good luck...JJ....

Re: Can it be a infection?

Well yesterday my doctor took a vial of my blood and sent me for chest x-ray hopefully something will show or give answer =).
My doctor also mentioned something about thyroid.

Re: Can it be a infection?

Well your on the right road seeing you went to the Dr. So now let's hope it is something easy to fix. Usually a Thyroid if it comes back as low will make you feel very tired, not sure about pains and aches.

Best of wishes....JJ.....
