I know how you feel.

I got it when I was like 15.

And I had to sleep for a whole day because I couldn’t stand being awake because my dad thought I was faking it so I didn’t have to go to school ):

Most likely the flu.  Flu shot only prevents one strain, and with it spreading like wild file I would conclude that it’s most likely the flu!

My husband had the same exact symptoms last week and we thought (and were hoping) that it was strep. Turns out it was the flu. :- Good luck… I hope it’s just strep since it’s easily treated!

@pharmy:   Do the symptoms feel similar?  It’s my understanding that there are hundreds of strains, so it’s definitely possible.  But yes, very unlucky!

Feel better soon!

That definitely sounds like strep or some kind of infection to me. Your flu shot won’t protect you against strep bacteria.

I’m sorry you’re not feeling good! I used to get it yearly… then I didn’t get it for around 4 years and got hit with it really badly last February. I took Thursday and Friday off work, Monday was a holiday and I still had to take Tuesday off. It took me a good two weeks to fully get over it!

Make sure you rest as much as you can! And drink whatever fluids you can.

@pharmy:   You had the flu as early as last September?  Are you sure it was the flu?

Do you have a fever?  Most often strep is accompanied with a fever.

@pharmy:   Ahh okay, makes sense.

Well again, feel better!

Feel better soon! I had strep throat when I was younger & I was miserable. Unfortunately my strep throat got complicated & I was admitted to the hospital for a week, so make sure you take all meds as directed because it can get serious if not treated appropriately.
