Since last Thursday i've been feeling off. Last thurs night after work I took my wee man to gymnastics. About 15 mins in I found it very uncomfortable to sit down on the bleechers, and kept standing up. When I got home, I found I still had the pain in my lower back and hips, and my skin was tingly, and I felt chilled. I thought for sure I was getting the flu.
Friday was a nightmare at work. I was a wreck for most of the day, but it was only the pain in the back an hips, as well as this weird headache that wasn't. I was ok as long as I didn't move my eyes too far in any direction. If I did it was accompanied by a dull ache in the head. I took some advil about noon and by three was feeling nearly normal, but had to take more advil by 9 on Friday night.
Saturday was similar, with the only thing easing the ache in the back, hips and head advil. But I still don't have any other flu symptoms...no cough, sinuses are fine, no nausea, no other tummy issues...
I'm really not sure what's what here. I had a similar day today but I'm out of advil, and tylenol isn't quite as good as advil. I did an easy travel wod today cause I'm sure the pain I'm in is not related to any muscle issues.
If anyone has any thoughts, other than to tell me to see a doctor (which I will tomorrow if I still feel this way) I'd appreciate hearing them. Is it possible to have the flu without all the normal symptoms?
Last time I got the flu, litteraly I was fine all day long, and then in the space of an hour I developed a cold sweat, chills, and could bare stand and walk right, went to the ER (I was in Vegas, this was during work up for tour), my BP and Pulse were spiked well above normal, and they immediately brought me in and hooked me up to monitors. After several hours and a few tests and blood work, diagnosis I had the flu. The rapid onset was unusal, but it was the flu, and I didn't have a cough or sinus issues or nausea. There are many different strains of the influenza, they don't all have the same symptoms. That said, since you have mentioned you have had brain/neurological issues before, that's what I would lean to first. Even with out your prior history, I would lean towards something of that nature first, there are a few strains of meningitis that are more commonly encountered if one spends alot of time around kids.
