had been feeling dizzy for a week, unwell last few days, fever last night and today spent in bed.

If you have got a decent immune system its nothing more than a bad cold.

If you are old, have underlying health issues then I can imagine its much worse.

Headache sets in around 6 pm and a sore throat. Then I feel normal the next morning. Been like that for a week. No idea what is happening.

My understanding is it's like Man Flu only more so. You basically collapse on the sofa , alternately groaning "'struth, I''m feeling crook" and "Aw Sheila, be a sport and puff up me cushions." Most shockingly you might even be put off piss-weak alcoholic beverages.

got to day 4 or feeling so bad I have not left the house, most of the time in bed or on the sofa.

reading up says is can be upto  1-2 weeks, cough can last 20days.

Think i'll start the year in Feb at this rate.

Bit of a cough but no sign of a cold

Docs now given green light down here to use anti-virals (ie it's bad).

But did you know that transmission by droplet is most efficient in dry atmospheres? If you want to stop airborne transmission you either need 100% relative humidity, or a well hot (30C) temperature.

The research suggests that droplet transmission occurs either outside, thanks to low temperatures, or inside, thanks to dry (centrally heated) rooms.

Of course, air-droplet transmission is but one vector and maybe not that important, but the findings are imo surprising.

But since that's entirely impractical, just wear a scarf - or in times of epidemic a gauze mask - over your nose.

That sounds like fatigue.  Have you had some decent downtime recently?  

I got the same after birth of my firstborn - long hours, long commute, lack of a proper holiday for ages (wife gave birth early than expected - the week before my main annual break period)

It turned into a stomach type bug in the end. Just took a long time to develop. I'm still not back to normal after 18 months of cancer treatment. 

Thanks for the ideas though. 

I'd just had a lovely Xmas so well rested up so out of the blue

Hope all OK in your home

With all this darkness, make sure you take D3 as well.

Yeah, it's not great in Moscow this year. Only six minutes of sunshine in December. You'll have to buy a lamp, Errol.)
