I never got the flu shot cause i dont ever normally get sick... Like ever. my doctor told me to rest and keep very hydrated and take over the counter stuff. I also bought some EmergenC to help boost my immune system. I am very scared of the flu!!! I am afraid of getting pnuemonia and dying from the flu beause i wasn't able to get tamiflu.

    So It started a couple days ago, I was REALLY cold literally shaking then I couldn't stop sneezing. I would sneeze then get congested to the pint where I couldn't sleep. Last night I got a fever, I don't have a thermometer (my mother touched my forehead). I got from being freezing literally shaking to being so hot my hair is wet from sweat. I'm also extremely weak, I have trouble getting up and couldn't open a water bottle. I currently not feeling as weak, so that's great! Anyways I have been talking cold/flu medicine. I'm pretty sure it's just a cold or at most the flu, but my mother thinks it's worse, she wants me to go to the ER. I would feel stupid going to the hospital for a cold. Idk, what do you guys think it is? The flu? Cold? Something else? Thanks :) btw any home remedies for a stuffy nose?

    I was at Sam's club and it was a rainy day. I was putting my groceries in the car and a tortilla bag fell on the floor. It was the torillas from the brand "El Milagro". The white bag is made out of paper. So when the bag fell, it fell on the wet parking lot floor so some water did sleep thru. Just a tad bit. I picked it up and when I got home threw out the tortillas that were on the side of the bag that touched the floor and kept the other half. I ate the tortillas from the side that I considered good. Now I'm wondering if I'm gonna die or what can happen to me such as parasites??

  • Child temp of 101.9? no flu or strep throat. Please help.?

    Best answer: That is a pretty low fever, any viral infection can cause a fever, as can an ear ache, or even hand foot and mouth, it’s not high enough for the ER, unless there are serious symptoms along with this. Do fever meds, see how it goes and call your peds.

  • Am I going to get lice?

    So I'm a nursing student and today in clinical we had a patient who was under contact precautions for lice. There were some hospital caps taped to the door so I grabbed one from there and put it on my head. Went into the patients room for no more than 2 minutes and came out.

    So I'm a nursing student and today in clinical we had a patient who was under contact precautions for lice. There were some hospital caps taped to the door so I grabbed one from there and put it on my head. Went into the patients room for no more than 2 minutes and came out. I took off my cap and the nurse told me I wasn't supposed to get the cap from the door, to get it from the box instead, and that hopefully nobody used it prior. I'm a bit worried but why would someone use a cap and put it back on the door they would just throw it away. Maybe I'm just paranoid. Anyway will I be ok? As soon as I came home I washed my hair thoroughly and I will again later tonight.

  • Do I have Tapeworms or something similar?

    Today when I used the bathroom, I noticed a stringlike object in my stool. I had a rare steak recently. But to be honest, I had other meats too.... IDK but I'm kinda freaking out! Could this be a parasitic infection or just something to do with the stool?

  • Can you catch the same illness you had twice?

    I caught a nasty flu and eventually found myself hospitalized for dehydration.

    I caught a nasty flu and eventually found myself hospitalized for dehydration. I'm now recovering and will be heading home shortly, however truth be told, I'm concerned that in that tiny apartment, I've coughed and sneezed over virtually everything but the ceiling for almost a week. I'm almost tempted to put a biohazard suit on and completely sanitize the place, hospital level and throw out any food I handled! Is it possible to be reinfected with the same illness you had if you encounter the germs later. That was NOT fun at all!!!

    Stay home if you can,if you go to the grocery store stay away from people and clean your hands when you get home. YOU don't know what is on those handles of those shopping carts!
    People can get another flu shot since the latest one was only 30% effective.

    I haven't gotten sick with the flu but i am terrified ill get it after reading reviews and seeing some post on FB. people are saying flu is turning into pnuemonia which turns into sepsis even if they did get tamiflu. I haven't had a flu shot in years cause i normally don't get ill. sometimes i get bronchitis and sinus stuff cause i have allergies. I had a bad case of strep throat in september then got a horrible cough not pneumonia but i assume it was bronchitis not sure if it was the flu cause they never tested but when i had strep i had a fever and was put on an antibiotic then got a horrible chunky chesty cough but lungs where clear...so idk :( i had a fever on and off in september when i was on amoxicillin for strep. but i am now terrified of getting the flu. I currently take a multi vitamin but this is making me nervous!! when does flu season end :(???

  • Is the flu shot safe? Should I continue to get it for myself and child?

    I've been getting the flu shot for a while and I've never had any problems. Why are people dying/getting really sick from the flu?

  • Who do you agree with? Should I listen to my dad or my fiance?

    My tonsils have been hurting for a few days, and the symptoms suggest I have tonsillitis. My dad says, do home remedies, and if it keeps hurting then go to the doctor on the weekend (in 5 days). My fiance says, go to the doctor now!
