    I have had high fever for 6 days now. I was diagnosed with the flu on Monday, Feb 10th. I can keep the temp barely under control alternating Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen. I called my doctor again today and she prescribed some antibiotics in case I had a bacterial infection also. If I still have fever Friday, I am supposed to go back to see her. I don't ever remember having the flu before, so I am not familiar with it. I am a 58 year old female health care provider(dental hygienist). I guess I was just wondering if what I am experiencing is typical for influenza. 6 days of high fever? Thank you!

    Yes, sounds like the typical flu. Maybe it would be best to get a blood test done if symptoms don't subside in next few days.
