Post Cold Symptoms $ Back Pain

Ugh! I always get sick in the winter. I slept most of yesterday evening and all of today. My symptoms are lightheadedness, fatigue, nausea, loss of appetite, nose congestion, dark urine, sore throat, and ringing in the ears. I tried Robitussin to help my symptoms but it hasn't done a thing. I'm drinking lots of orange juice and water to help, too. What do you recommend to help?

Also, for the past few days I have been experiencing moderate back pain and stiffness. It's painful to lay on my back, bend down, and stand up. I don't know if this has anything to do with my cold. I tried taking 3 Bayer aspirins but it doesn't help much. I feel like crap!

I hope you are feeling better by now! You could have a touch of the flu ya know. Flu makes you ache all over or in some people just a back ache etc. It just sounds to me like the classic flu symptom.

I don't think Robitussin will help your stomach, it's for coughs and/or congestion.

It does sound like the flu, though, and back pain is not uncommon.
