This is not a normal flu or the common cold. It is here in the UK too. It starts with a bad throat and a cough, then develops into a chest infection, mild fever, headaches, etc. The coughing gets worse at evening and night. The whole thing leaves you feeling very drained. After a while it seems to go away but then it returns. My family's doctors have all reported this illness amongst many of their patients, and have seen the same pattern: they get better then they fall ill with it again. Everyone I know who's had it has been ill for at least 2 weeks. I've had it for a week and am not getting much better. As I said, this is a major epidemic and it's going unreported. [/quote] They're my symptoms exactly. Except it's sinus as well. I can barely breath through my nose and when I breath through the mouth the coughing starts. Thought I was getting better a day or so ago and then it returned with a vengeance today. Can barely think straight. :zombies: [/quote] Yep, I got the sinus thing too, I forgot to mention that. My mother's doctor described it as a flu virus but I'm not sure. It doesn't feel like flu to me. In fact it doesn't feel like anything I've had before. [/quote] I don't know if I can agree with your assertion that it's an unreported epidemic. I believe that the World Health Organization has been reporting internationally that it had that potentional. Each nation has their own national health organizations, and they usually decide based upon biostatistics over time, and so they may not have had adequate data sampling until recently. It has been declared an epidemic here in the USA. I would imagine that much of such declaration would depend upon geography and season as cold Winters would foster environments in the respiratory tract that worsen it. Because there are always numerous common illnesses (four common now in my region of the USA), and numerous respiratory illnesses from viral and bacterial sources, as well as fungal and secondary infections, then physcians don't really know what is the causitive agent of an illness unless they have a rapid test to ascertain with reason and with evidence which pathogen is creating the illness. With Strep Throat or RSV they can be rapidly determined. Many can't and since they're are so many, a physican makes an educated guess based upon prevalance of the illness within their region, plus looks at the symptoms of the patiens. [/quote]
