Patient : I test positive today foR both strains of influenza, A and B. My Dr said she had never seen this before and I'm not sure what to think. I feel horrible, headache, body ache, nausea, vomitting, chiils, fever, you name it, I have it, my hair even hurts! She prescribed tammiflu but said that she didn't know if it would be effective as I may be beyond the 48 hour period from onset. At what point do I get concerned and seek further medical attention?
