    Help! I started with the flu on December 19 - all the typical symptons - fever, aches (more than FM pain), naseau, diarreah, headache etc - now three weeks later and I still have nasal congestion, cough and the tiredness (more than the FM)and chest congestion.

    Has anyone had this linger for so long? Does FM make flu and colds last longer? Should I break down and go to the dr? I do not like to take antibiotics unless absolutely needed but at this point wonder if there is an underlying bronchial or sinus infection.

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    sound like the flu that went around this year. Everyone that I know that had it is still having problems.
