Question Flu or something else?

Hello, I am trying to get several different opinions on some symptoms I am currently experiencing. I have extreme dizziness, fever, fatigue, and mild headache / neckache. (Otherwise, no bodily aches.) I believe it may be the flu, however, I have not had a sore throat or stuffy/runny nose. I was told that you CAN have the flu without nose/throat symptoms, but I feel that my symptoms are too mild to be the flu. Do you think this is some type of flu? (seasonal, swine) If so, what is the general duration of it? I have had these symptoms for about a week now (first started to experience them Tuesday of last week) and I would like to know when I should seek medical help for them. (I really do not want to go to the doctor's if all they are going to tell me is to keep resting.)

Re: Flu or something else?

You are probably better now. Which I hope you are! I have all those same symptoms plus diarrea. I have no doubt that its the flu. I just don't know what kind. To me, its all bad. I just hurt all over and have a fever of about 100.0 My head and neck hurt too and I have been gently pumping the gatorade and water as I can throughout the day and evening. I hope its a short one. Dear God!

Re: Flu or something else?

I have been an advocate of apple cider vinegar for the last 10 years and taking acv has been part of my daily routine for over 5 years. I eat a healthy diet and exercise very regularly, but I attribute my lack of illness over the last 5 years to the benefits of apple cider vinegar. I try to keep my body as alkaline as possible (to much acidity allows bacteria to develop) and acv helps to regulate the body's pH balance. My favorite brand is Body Ami and I am giving it to all of my friends as a holiday gift.
