What exactly are "flu like symptoms"....
      03/06/06 09:09 PM

I know with HIV you can't go by symptoms (so they say). But if one was to experience them, they say you'd have "flu like" symptoms. What exactly does that mean? Is it stomach flu type of symptoms where you can't keep anything down, and you just generally feel like crap? Or is it the achey, high fever, can't move more than two feet type of "symptoms"....

I keep trying to diagnos myself. I've had a sore throat for a couple days (just on one side)..but its gone now. Never had a fever either....or aches or pains.

I think (hope) mine is all anxiety and stress related. I haven't slept for 2 weeks....haven't eaten in that amount of time either. I was on an antidepressant which caused some side effects..then went off of it....which cause other side effects. So Im trying to remain hopeful that this sore throat I had and the little bit of stomach trouble was a result of not sleeping, not eating, stress, anxiety, on medicine, then off medicine.....and not early HIV signs.

Stress and anxiety can do all that to a person correct??

And "flu like" symptoms in terms of ARS are what???
