@Chook, as @Annb said goodness knows what we've had unless they come up with a reliable antibody test. I'm glad she's called for advice. I was convinced I had a very bad cold but now I'm not so sure. Hubby started it with sneezing, sore throat and just generally "off" at the end of February. No fever and apart from being a bit nauseous and not eating for a couple of days he recovered very quickly. First thing I noticed (and it was right at the end of February) was my legs were agony and my BGs went into the 6's. This was followed by starting to sniffle and the worst sore throat I'd ever had. That lasted 3 or 4 days and I was dosed up on paracetamol. At no time did I have a temperature but I had awful night sweats. As soon as the sore throat started I moved to another bedroom. Dry, non productive cough for about 5 days. Followed by nausea but no sickness. As many have mentioned the fatigue was horrendous. I could fall asleep sitting up and couldn't control it. At the start I had aching limbs as well. If I'm honest there were times I could have sat and cried I felt so bad. First 2 weeks were the worst. Only thing that helped was paracetamol, hot showers and Vics. I didn't get everything at once and I did get the occasional break. The whole thing dragged on for 5 weeks. The odd one which came on at the tail end was my sinuses were affected. My nose was incredibly cold in the sinuses and that's what came back again. Once again it was hot showers and inhaling steam that helped. As I said goodness knows what I had but it was pretty horrible.
