    Been ill for three days with:
    tiredness
    weakness
    loadsa phlegm
    burning eyes
    loss of appetite
    can't poo
    dizziness

    Had fever with being hot but feeling cold but it's gone now. Head weighed like a tonne but also gone.

    I'm guessing flu but I don't have sniffles or the cough.

    I would go to the GP but I might collapse :rolleyes:

    Any help?

    I had something like this, and after about a week it went away, although it took me ages to stop being exhausted. It sounds like some kinda virus/flu-ey type thing. I'd say, if it lasts more than a week, drag yourself to the doctors. In the meantime, drink loads and try and eat a little to keep your strength up. Hope you feel better!

    I'm male haha. I've been drinking lots of water and carrot juice. My appetite has completely gone; yesterday I could only have half a Pot Noodle and had to chuck the rest!

    I look at Pot Noodles when I'm seemingly fine and feel sick. Does that mean I'm ill too?


    You've got a virus. Keep your fluids up, plenty of rest, and some ibuprofen.
