I started out Sunday with all the symptoms of the Flu. I could feel it coming on throughout the day and by the next morning I had body aches, fever, headaches, chills, fatigue, chest congestion, a deep painful cough, but with no sputum. Two days later the fever, chills, body aches and chest congestion had subsided and for my nose began getting stuffy. Now for the past two days my nose is runny and I have symptoms I usually experience with springtime tree pollen. My nose starts to burn and I feel as if I'm going to sneeze. I can feel it all through my face, my eyes begin to water, then the urge subsides. This has been going on about every 20 minutes for 2 days now and suddenly I have some nasal congestion and light yellow sinus drainage. I tried using Allegra D to help with the allergy type symptoms to no avail. Is anyone else experiencing the latter symptoms with the flu or is it possible I have had flu symptoms followed by acute sinusitis?View Thread
