Hi. I have had the flu now for the 6th day - very severe, in bed all day/night, I've been taking all the recommended tinctures,vitamins, etc in my Alternative Medicine Book but by Tues I was just getting worse so I did go to the Dr. I did not have pneumonia and my EKG was normal..phew! They ended up giving my a shot of Torbil ? for the severe head pain and now I have 800mg Ibubufrophon Sp..sorry so tired..which does take the pain away but requires me to be in bed. I'm more worried about WHY my head hurts so badly when my body is obviously recovering...Dr ruled out sinus, ears, meniginitis. Is this just the flu and I need to deal with it...is there anything else that helps w/ head pain that I may not be already taking?<br><br>
Thank you so much..<br>

How did your doctor rule out meningitis? Did he do a spinal tap? That's the *only* way to diagnose it.<br><br>
I had it, and I was flat on my back for 3 weeks, taking percocets & vicodin every 3 hours.
