Flu with no Fever?

Is it possible to have the flu and no fever? I've felt awful the last few days: sore throat, stuffy nose, really bad headache, aches, fatigue, nausea... but no fever my temperature is bellow normal like in the 97's... Normally I would just assume flu but I've never heard on anyone getting the flu without having a fever too. Is it maybe something else?

Re: Flu with no Fever?

Hello, ACWright . . . it is possible. At least it is for me.

I have had bad colds and flu, and even abscessed teeth without running a fever. I seem to have simply stopped running fevers about ten years ago when sick. I know that my metabolism changed at that time because I lost a tremendous amount of weight back then and not sure if there is a connection with that or not.

It could be the flu or it could just be a very bad cold virus. If it lasts longer than ten days, it may have turned into a bacterial infection which you would need to see a doctor for.

Let us know how you are doing!

There are many types of coughs for various reasons, and these should be treated with reference to their nature and intensity. However, the apple cider vinegar and honey treatment will prove an efficacious treatment in this respect. Two teaspoons of ACV and two of honey mixed with a glassful of water should be taken before meals, or when the irritation occurs. In the evening it would be an idea to have this mixture by your bed so that it can be sipped during the evening if an attack presents itself.
Postnasal drips and watery eyes are also due to a faulty diet, here again this should be thoroughly investigated, as the body is eliminating excessive mucous caused by the wrong types of food. This is often caused by a lack of potassium in the diet too, hence the cider vinegar therapy will help considerably. The usual dosage as prescribed above should be taken three times a day before meals. Wheat should be eliminated from the diet completely and rye and corn products should be substituted, if required.
To treat this, one should gargle with apple cider vinegar. One teaspoonful of vinegar in a glass of water is the dosage to be used. A mouthful of this solution is gargled every hour, and the second mouthful after gargling should be swallowed. This is to be repeated every hour until the condition of the throat is improved.
