Getting hot flushes with my cold

One minute I’m cold the best I am kicking off the covers. Just taking Tylenol and plenty of fluids.

Just got to ride it out!

Thing is my chest is mostly clear. Can it still be flu?

I got it, I had a lemon/ginger tea and i just bought a pukka lemon/ginger and honey tea bags.

For most people it just advises rest. Is a virus so antibiotictics don’t work. Wouldn’t mind most of the symptoms but these hot and cold flushed are kicking my ass

Yes you can still have the flu. Be careful and rest. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids. Try to get some vitamin c in you, from actual citrus is the best for being absorbed.

The nhs link doesn’t say to not eat. You need extra energy when I’ll I reckon.

When I was a kid I used to get lucozade when ill - but I don’t think that is advised anymore
