INFLUENZA
« on: Yesterday at 07:49:38 PM »
Good morning from Japan.
For the past three days l have had a high fever and yesterday l was diagnosed influenza A type.
I have had influenza a couple of times before but this one is really bad.   I wonder if that is because my immuno  system is low ?  I am scared l might not get recovered this  time.
It is like when l was down with PCP three years ago.   Anyone who have gone through the same?

Thank you.
Japanese National.

Have visited 45 US states, DC, and Guam and Saipan.
Wishing to visit American Samoa someday.

Hi Daniel

Sorry to hear you are poorly with the flu

I don't really have any special insight to provide you, other than you will need to follow the self-care guidelines for any flu-like illness...ensure you are hydrated, get plenty of rest and use painkillers to reduce fever etc

The flu virus can really do a number on people, even really healthy HIV- folk so it's important to rest and recover.

Get well soon, kind sir.  Even HIV negative people get the flu, so I don't think you are at greater risk.  Rest and stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
