So my cough turned into what feels like the flu...but I got the flu shot so I guess it may just be a nasty virus or something... Barking cough, fever, aches and chills..and sinus congestion...

I called the doctor just to find out when I should worry and all they said was keep the fever under 101.0 by taking Tylenol every hrs. Not all that helpful...I am actually more worried about Pneumonia then anything else since everything seems to just be sitting my chest. Robitussin is working okay but def not bringing much up...plus all this coughing has my ...ah..down there...feeling like its going ot fall out! Oh well, I just thought I would share a little peice of my misery I am taking the Tylenol, trying to drink fluids, got the vaporizer on and pulled out the vicks vapor rub...not much more I can do..trying to avoid the sudafed for now...

Oh no. sorry you are feeling so bad. Just try to stay hydrated and rest and definitely keep that fever down. I hope you feel better soon.

I would take about 25000 iu of vit. d for 2 days in a row. And do a face steam with eucalyptus oil. If you can take some oil of oregano, do so. OH and elderberry syrup in some water is good for the flu.

Thanks for the suggestions! The Tylenol is not doing much and I am just sooo achy...esp in lady parts. I wonder if I have a UTI too because I have a terrible lower back ache..but that could just be the achiness in general..plus it is so painful to pee..not burning just like intense pressure pain up inside of there. I am becoming a worry wart though so I guess I should just let it pass and quit wondering!

Sorry you aren't feeling well! It could be flu even if you had the vax - it's under 60% effective, so lots of people still get it.

Ahhh, yuck!!! Feeling sick while pregnant is just horrible. And yeah, it could still be a flu... maybe a different strain than what you got the vax for. either way.... sucks!!!!!

Try putting the vicks on your feet instead of your chest; and put some thick socks on over it. Its weird, but it helps.

When did you get the flu shot? You may of actually gotten the flu from it. It's a very common side effect.
