    This flu is probably one of the worst ones. The things that are stopping me revising are mainly dizziness and tiredness, along with very mild nausea. I usually don't let headaches get in the way.

    I've tried drinking more water and I've tried to eat more (It has led to a loss of appetite) but I'm constantly feeling tired despite having a 10+ hours sleep. Lemsip seems to only be helping with pain relief (The headache) and clearing out my nose but not much else.

    Should I just stop working and wair for it to go or is it still worth working despite not being as productive?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't work while you're fairly acute, once the majority of symptoms pass and you're just tired I would start revising but you wont take anything in whie you're sick enough to be taking loads of lemsip and so on so you may as well focus on recovering
