About 3 months ago I got some bug like the


Q: About 3 months ago I got some bug like the flu. My body was sore all over, and I had a fever and pounding headache along with an acute sore throat. Also had some pain in my ears. Since then until now, I keep getting a sore throat which I thought is probably related to the fact that I haven't been able to get rid of the stuffiness from that time yet. It comes and goes, with sore throat, swollen tonsils, tiredness and body soreness and I my ears feel plugged and sometimes will hurt along with my jaw. Now for the past week or longer, I have had a headache every day with tiredness and starting yesterday my throat suddenly started hurting and my tonsils swelled up again. Today I have cold like symptoms like a runny nose as well, and also feeling tired all over, although not necessarily sleepy, nauseous, terrible headache and jaw is aching and neck is very stiff and sore. I couldn't sleep well at night because of the headache and sore throat. I'm not sure why I can't get rid of this and I am trying to figure out what could be wrong. I eat healthy, exercise, drink lots of water and I don't drink alot of alcohol or anything, so I should be pretty healthy. I'm not overweight either. I had a splenectomy, but other than that I don't have any health particulars and I've never had allergies that I am aware of.
