Hello. I'm a 21 year old without health insurance and I've had to ride out the flu alone. I'm fine now, however, I've been experiencing strange symptoms.

There are mild, temporary sharp pains that alternate on different parts of my limbs. They seem related to my muscles or nerves. I have also felt nauseous and constipated!

There is a strain in my neck and shoulder and my eyes.

I also feel mild, dull headaches and even tender spots.

I woke up today feeling very weak, and my muscles seemed tired.

I woke up in the middle of the night terrified for my health.

If anyone can help put me at ease until my insurance clears out, id be grateful.

Thank you for asking

FLu does that to a person. These are just the sequelaes of the viral infection you have been through. Just take some acetaminophen and rest for a while. Eat healthy and use hot beverages as remedy. You will be fine.

Take care
