Flu or a flare?

    Saturday and Sunday I was EXHAUSTED and in a lot more pain than usual. My husband definitely has the flu, and my niece was treated for it the week after they came to visit and I accidentally drank after her.

    My husband had the hallmark fever and body aches. I have had no fever at all, just the fatigue and body aches. Symptoms could be put down to fibro, but so many things can.

    I called in sick today but I really need to be there tomorrow to work on year end stuff for our accountant. My worries are two fold. If I have the flu, I don't want to expose my co-workers or hurting myself by NOT resting when I should be and I don't want to be there feeling like crap (although I am there many days feel just so with the fibro).

    Anyone have experience with this? Thinking it was the fibro but really having the flu? Also, yesterday I was alot more sensitive to sound than usual.
