Eine Grippe (Influenza) kann sehr unterschiedlich ablaufen: Milde, erkältungsähnliche Grippesymptome sind ebenso möglich wie eine schwere Erkrankung, die im Extremfall sogar tödlich enden kann.

Gerade anfangs kann man die Grippe leicht mit einer Erkältung verwechseln. Der Unterschied zwischen Influenza und Erkältung zeigt sich im Verlauf und in der Schwere der Erkrankung.

Die Grippe ist eine plötzlich auftretende, fieberhafte Viruserkrankung, die durch verschiedene Grippeviren entsteht. Da sie im Winter häufiger vorkommt, wird sie auch "saisonale Grippe" genannt.

Typischerweise tritt die Grippe zeitlich und örtlich gehäuft auf: Dann spricht man von einer Grippewelle oder Epidemie. In größeren Zeitabständen von mehreren Jahren bis Jahrzehnten breitet sich die Influenza länderübergreifend beziehungsweise weltweit aus – dies bezeichnet man als Pandemie.

Die Erkrankungs- und Sterberate schwankt bei der Influenza allerdings stark. In manchen Jahren steigt die normale Sterblichkeitsrate trotz Grippefällen gar nicht an. Doch während einer einzelnen Grippesaison können auch mehrere Tausend Menschen mehr als sonst sterben. So gab es beispielsweise durch die besonders heftige Grippewelle 2012/13 in Deutschland über 20.000 zusätzliche Todesfälle. Daher ist eine Influenza nie als harmlos anzusehen.

Typisch für die echte Grippe (Influenza): Man fühlt sich schlagartig richtig krank.

Ausgelöst wird die Grippe durch bestimmte Viren: die sogenannten Influenzaviren vom Typ A, B und C.

Der Hauptunterschied zwischen Grippe und Erkältung ("grippaler Infekt"): Bei der Grippe treten die Symptome gleichzeitig und heftiger auf:

Es kommt zu hohem Fieber über 38,5 Grad Celsius,.

. das mit Schüttelfrost einhergehen kann.

Das Fieber kann über mehrere Tage andauern und schwächt den Betroffenen.

Auch Husten zählt bei einer Grippe zu den gängigen Beschwerden.

Manche Betroffene leiden unter Halsschmerzen und Heiserkeit,.

. andere Grippepatienten klagen zudem über Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen.

Bis die Grippe ausgestanden ist, vergehen meist ein bis zwei Wochen.

Heavy-metal poisoning can make you feel uncomfortable all over, and it is very common due to all the environmental toxins. As you eliminate these metals, bear the uncomfortable body aches and realize that they are leaving your body forever.

Meat-eating creates an acid condition in the body. When meat is eliminated, the body tries to reestablish its naturally-healthy, alkaline condition. As the acid condition of the body changes to one of alkalinity, symptoms may arise that may confuse the new vegetarian.

A sour, disagreeable odor may emit from the body as the acids leave or are neutralized. Hair may fall out and the breath may turn foul. Urine may be very dark and a sharp, bitter taste may be in the mouth.

Weakness of the arms and legs may occur. Many people contuse this weakness for protein deficiency. Instead, the weakness has resulted from a consumption of too much acid-forming protein in the past. The body’s energies are directed toward neutralizing these old toxins and so you may feel weak for a temporary period. Once the toxins are taken care of and an alkaline condition is reestablished, then strength returns to the limbs.

The discomfort of an over-acid body caused by meat-eating can be quickly overcome by a high-alkaline diet, such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

Most people who change their diet and improve their health may experience one or more of the symptoms described below. Depending upon your past health, these symptoms may be mild or intense, short-term or long-term, temporary or recurrent.

As you improve your health, however, and stay on an optimum diet, all symptoms will gradually disappear.

Under no circumstances should these symptoms be halted by drugs.

Relief from some of these symptoms may come through fasting and rest primarily.

Moderate exercise is also beneficial, if your strength allows. Sleep and freedom from stress is vital.

Sunshine and fresh air will also aid in detoxification.

A headache is the body’s chief warning signal of body toxicity. The toxic load in the body has increased so fast that poisons are circulating in the bloodstream and cause irritation to the brain and nerves.

Aspirin should never be taken for a headache. For some relief, lay down and rest with a cool, damp cloth across the eyes and forehead. Fasting may also help. Have someone massage the neck and temple. Avoid all stress at this time.

When food is not being digested properly or is passing right through your body, then it is time to stop all food intake. This is your body’s way of telling you it doesn’t require any nourishment at this time, but instead is busy cleaning.

Careful food combinations and avoiding heavy foods are advised.

Diarrhea should not be halted by medicines. Rest and abstinence from food are your best resorts.

A new diet may occasion temporary constipation. Brisk walking of at least one mile a day will help end this problem.

Eating foods naturally high in water and fiber will eventually remedy this condition. If little food is eaten, drink distilled water whenever thirsty.

Key tests for identification

Influenza can be diagnosed on symptoms alone and there are some test that laboratory can also use. There are some tests that are rapid and those that take days to come back with results (3). There are culture-based and non-cultured based methods to diagnose the infection. PCR, ELISA-type assays, or immunofluoresence are rapid influenza test that provide results within 24 hours. Results from cultures test take a little longer, 3 to 10 days because they normally are not performed right in the spot, they are normally sent out to diagnostic laboratories(3).

Signs and symptoms of disease: (12)

If infected with influenza the person will usually feel symptoms 1 to 4 days later. You can spread the flu to others before your symptoms start and for another 3 to 4 days after your symptoms appear. The symptoms start very quickly and may include (12):

· Body Aches, specially joints and throat

· Dry cough, sneezing

· Extreme coldness and fever

· Nasal congestion: stuffy nose

· Fatigue (extreme exhaustion)

Note: Typically, the fever begins to decline on the second or third day of the illness (12).

Virulence factors: Clycoprotein spikes, overall ability to change genetically. Most eukaryotic organism bases their reproduction in DNA. However, the influenza virus reproduces the RNA (8). According to studies, the properties of RNA help to explain the epidemiology of influenza and the difficulty of achieving successful prophylactic treatment by using vaccines (8).

Drifting and Shifting

Influenza virus is one of the most changeable of any known viruses. These genetic changes may be small and continuous or large and abrupt (8). Antigenic drift- Small, continuous changes happen in type A and type B influenza as the virus makes copies of itself. Antigenic shift occurs when to different flu strains infect the same cell and exchange genetic material (7). The novel assortment of HA or NA proteins in a shifted virus creates a new influenza A subtype. The drifting is frequent enough to make the new strain of virus often unrecognizable to the human immune system. For this reason, a new flu vaccine must be produced each ear to combat that year’s prevalent strains (7).

The bottom line, says Dr. Daniel: Don’t ignore how you feel. If you know something isn’t right, you can’t expect symptoms to just go away. Even though women often put themselves last after taking care of others, it’s important to pay attention to your body’s signals and trust your instincts. Women may experience warning signs up to a month before an attack, which means they have a valuable internal warning system when something isn’t right. The true trick to preventing a heart attack is taking preventative measures like exercising and eating well, but most of all, listening to your body.

Progesterone is an important hormone that both men and women produce. Women rely more on progesterone, especially to do things like protect an ongoing pregnancy and to keep menstrual cycles regular. When women do not have enough of this hormone they may experience low progesterone symptoms, which can be extremely varied and affect many systems in the body.

Low progesterone symptoms can manifest as directly related to menstrual cycle, fertility and reproductive issues. Some common symptoms include irregularity of the menstrual cycle, strong cramps during menstruation, higher incidence of PMS, and greater presence of blood clots during periods. When progesterone levels are very low, infertility may occur because ovulation is not occurring. Another affected aspect can be sex drive or libido, which may be reduced.

These low progesterone symptoms aren’t always dangerous. A female body's production of progesterone naturally decreases 10 to 12 days after ovulation occurs, unless a woman becomes pregnant. This decrease triggers the start of menstruation and can lead to some of the normal symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle, like cramping and PMS. When periods are irregular, however, it may suggest greater imbalance of progesterone levels or other important hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle.

It’s also valuable to understand that menopause causes reduction in progesterone and this may be responsible for certain menopausal symptoms like moods swings, hot flashes, decreased libido, and insomnia. Other low progesterone symptoms may affect women before and after menopause occurs. People may feel fatigue, have dry skin, experience insomnia, have depression, and be likely to put on weight.

Sometimes low progesterone symptoms can be more dangerous. Chronic depression or anxiety, for instance, could lead to risk to suicidal behavior. Low progesterone levels can create dysfunction of the thyroid gland, and most seriously, certain forms of cancer may be more likely, including uterine cancer.

Another possible set of symptoms associated with low progesterone are those affecting memory. People may experience memory loss or lack of mental acuity when levels of this hormone are well below normal. These symptoms may be directly related to lower thyroid hormone. If low progesterone causes hypothyroidism, this in turn can result in difficulty with memory and concentration. Alternately, both hormones aid in mental acuity and lack of both makes decline in mental sharpness more severe.

If you think you have low progesterone levels, you should see your doctor. Many women have a few of these symptoms but never check because their low progesterone symptoms are not too bothersome. Occasionally, slightly reduced levels of progesterone create small concern, but some women find help if they take additional progesterone hormone. There are some over the counter natural progesterone creams you can purchase, but if you really feel your body needs supplementation with this hormone, you should consult a doctor first.

42) Does anyone have symptoms of heavy long periods due to low progesterone. Mine was at a 7 before I got on 300mg of progesterone. I am 30 and dealt with this since I was 10 years old. It’s been a long battle for me. Due to the severity of this we have not been able to conceive a child of our own. Without progesterone my period will last on the average four to six weeks with about a one or two week break and then back on again.

41) I have an autistic daughter who started having seizures last fall. The doctor prescribed a particular med and now her seizures have increased, so the doctor kept increasing the med and the seizures have increased as well.

I started seeing a pattern with her periods and ovulation with the seizures. Last night, I started looking at possible links and found out that increased estrogen and low progesterone can cause seizures. I then looked at symptoms of low progesterone and realized I've suffered from those symptoms for many decades.

Today, while researching the medicine, I found out that one of the side effects was increased FSH and LH, which increases estrogen to start ovulation. So that's why there could be this increase in the seizures with the meds.

I'm frustrated as to what to do now. I've had it for years. With mainstreamed medicine they only rely on pharmaceutical companies for treatment, and the natural alternatives which are usually more helpful are never promoted by them or covered by insurance. Something has to change in how insurance covers medical forms of treatment!

40) Turmeric helps with aches/pains/stiffness and makes the “getting old” feeling go away.

Vitamin B5 is great for adult acne, hair loss, rosacea, pcos, insulin resistance. Facial skin will look wonderful.

Ein erhöhtes Risiko für eine schwere Grippe haben Sie zum Beispiel, wenn Sie:

  • schwanger oder
  • schon älter sind oder
  • eine chronische Herzerkrankung,
  • eine chronische Lungenerkrankung,
  • eine Stoffwechselerkrankung (z.B. Diabetes mellitus) oder
  • ein geschwächtes Immunsystem haben.

Bei einer leicht verlaufenden Grippe können Sie auf Mittel gegen Viren oder sonstige verschreibungspflichtige Medikamente verzichten und auf andere Mittel zurückgreifen. Beispiele:

  • Sie können gegen die Grippesymptome schmerzlindernde und fiebersenkende Medikamente (z.B. mit Acetylsalicylsäure) einnehmen.
  • Zudem können – je nach Symptomatik der Influenza – zur Behandlung Hustensäfte und Nasentropfen sinnvoll sein.

Zudem sind in der akuten Phase der Grippe zur Behandlung dringend einige Tage Bettruhe ratsam. Auch nach der akuten Erkrankungsphase ist es wichtig, sich körperlich zu schonen – das bedeutet vor allem, dass Sie die Influenza völlig auskurieren sollten, bevor Sie wieder Sport treiben.

Bei Grippe können auch verschiedene Hausmittel helfen, die Beschwerden zu lindern. Beispiele:

  • Inhalieren mit Kamille oder Salzlösungen – dies ist gut für die Atemwege.
  • Gurgeln und heiße Getränke zu sich nehmen – so können Sie die Rachenentzündung lindern.

Der Körper verliert während einer Grippe viel Flüssigkeit. Darum ist es vor allem bei Fieber wichtig, dass Sie ausreichend trinken (pro Tag mindestens zwei bis drei Liter Wasser, Früchtetee und/oder Fruchtsäfte). Auf Alkohol, Kaffee und schwarzen Tee sollten Sie bei einer Influenza jedoch verzichten.

Virostatika sind spezielle Medikamente, die gegen Viren wirken. Bei einer schweren Grippe ist es wichtig, dass die Behandlung mit Virostatika so schnell wie möglich beginnt (d.h. innerhalb der ersten 48 Stunden nach Ausbruch der Influenza): Denn dann steten die Chancen am besten, dass die Mittel etwas gegen die Grippeviren bewirken.

Zur Gruppe der Virostatika zählen unter anderem Neuraminidasehemmer. Diese Medikamente bekämpfen die Grippe, indem sie die weitere Ausbreitung des Grippevirus im Körper hemmen. Die Behandlung mit Neuraminidasehemmern wirkt gegen das Influenza-A- und Influenza-B-Virus, nicht jedoch gegen das Grippevirus vom Typ C.

Wirkstoffe aus der Gruppe der Neuraminidasehemmer verhindern, dass Grippeviren sich weiter im Körper vermehren.

Gegenwärtig stehen die Virostatika Zanamivir und Oseltamivir zur Verfügung, um eine Grippe ursächlich zu behandeln:

  • Zanamivir erhalten Sie als Pulver, das Sie inhalieren müssen. Dieses Grippemittel ruft in seltenen Fällen krampfartige Verengungen der Atemwege (Bronchospasmen) hervor – vor allem bei Menschen mit einer chronischen Lungenerkrankung.
  • Oseltamivir nehmen Sie über den Mund ein. Die Therapie mit Oseltamivir löst in etwa jedem zehnten Fall Nebenwirkungen im Magen-Darm-Trakt aus (v.a. Übelkeit und Erbrechen).

Allerdings ist der Nutzen von Neuraminidasehemmern bei Grippe umstritten: So verkürzt die Behandlung mit dem Grippemittel Oseltamivir die Dauer der Influenza nur geringfügig. Und dass das Mittel das Komplikations- oder Übertragungsrisiko senkt, ist nicht sicher nachgewiesen.

Entsprechend empfiehlt die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO), Oseltamivir nur noch als Ergänzungsmittel bei schwer an Grippe erkrankten Menschen im Krankenhaus einzusetzen.

§ Measures must be taken to neutralize yeast / fungal toxins, use Molybdenum and Pantethine to accomplish this.

§ Using our Wow Drops frequently throughout the day really helps to reduce symptoms immediately.

§ If you've cut out all grains from your diet and are experiencing yeast die-off reactions, the re-introduction of a small amount (half a cereal bowl per day) of brown rice may work wonders. Be sure to chew it thoroughly, since grain cannot be properly digested unless it completely chewed up.

§ For those with access to a sauna, begin slowly (20 minutes per session) scrub all skin surfaces with a stiff brush and shower immediately afterwards.

§ Measures must be taken to encourage more frequent and complete bowel elimination for those with slow elimination!

§ If you're constipated, or only eliminating once daily: try some of the following ideas, you'll have to experiment with dosages until you discover what's most effective for you. Ideally you'll want to have three eliminations daily.

§ Start every morning with a tall glass of very hot water.

§ Try a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, several times daily on an empty stomach.

§ Grind a small amount of flax seeds in a coffee grinder until fine, light and fluffy, then stir a heaping tablespoon into a glass of lukewarm water, let stand for about ten minutes, stir again and drink on an empty stomach.

§ If all else fails, administer a warm, salt-water enema. If you have access to a colon hydro-therapist, a course of colonic irrigation treatments is usually a good idea. Individuals who develop rebound constipation after colonic irrigation are advised to avoid this method.

Asbestos symptoms are indicators of the serious adverse health problems that are caused by dangerous levels of asbestos exposure. The Occupational Health & Safety Administration estimates that 1.3 million people are exposed to the dangerous of asbestos exposure every year in the work place and should be aware of symptoms of asbestos exposure that may indicate serious underlying health problems. People who work, or have worked, in the shipyard, factory, railroad, construction, automobile, and building industries in the last 60 years may be susceptible to developing asbestos symptoms.

Most deadly diseases that are caused by asbestos exposure lie dormant for years, so it is possible to suffer from the ill effects of asbestos disease without any noticeable asbestos symptoms. Because of disease latency, asbestos symptoms might appear years - even decades - after initial asbestos exposure. Medical experts assign a latency period to malignant mesothelioma of thirty to fifty years. That’s one of the reasons the disease is so difficult to diagnose; the job where the exposure occurred in most instances ended decades prior to the health problems beginning.

The clinical manifestations for asbestos generally appear between twenty and forty years after the asbestos exposure has occurred, or begun. The fibrotic process that impacts the lung tissue in this disease maybe accelerated and is certainly exacerbated by smoking. Asbestosis, characterized by severe breathing restriction, develops in nearly half of all workers who have reached “occupational levels” of asbestos exposure.

The type of asbestos symptoms an individual experiences generally depends on the asbestos-related disease that has been developed. There are various types of asbestos-related conditions; the two most commonly associated with asbestos exposure are asbestosis and mesothelioma. However chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and is a condition that asbestos exposure has contributed to in thousands of cases.

Asbestosis symptoms commonly include these conditions:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic cough
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty with physical exertion

Les diverses souches d'influenza A produisent les mêmes types de symptômes. Parmi ceux-ci, on retrouve:

  • des courbatures;

  • une fièvre;
  • des maux de tête;
  • une perte d'appétit;
  • un mal de gorge.

Certaines personnes infectées par le virus de la grippe H1N1 ont également signalé des vomissements et de la diarrhée.

Les symptômes peuvent varier de légers à graves et peuvent parfois nécessiter une hospitalisation. Dans certains cas, des complications graves comme la pneumonie et l'insuffisance respiratoire peuvent causer le décès. Tout comme la grippe saisonnière, la grippe H1N1 peut aggraver des problèmes de santé chronique existants.

Des tests diagnostiques en laboratoire peuvent être demandés par le médecin pour aider à identifier le virus de la grippe. Si vous avez séjourné dans une région où il y a une éclosion de cas de grippe H1N1 et que vous éprouvez l'un des symptômes de la grippe, vous devriez consulter votre médecin. Mentionnez sans faute à votre médecin la région visitée. Téléphonez à l'avance avant de vous rendre chez votre médecin pour préparer votre visite.

La souche H1N1 est comprise dans le vaccin antigrippal saisonnier. Des médicaments sont également disponibles pour aider à prévenir et à soigner la grippe H1N1. Ce sont les médicaments dénommés antiviraux. Deux classes d'antiviraux sont disponibles: les inhibiteurs de la protéine M2 (par ex. l'amantadine*) et les inhibiteurs de la neuraminidase (par ex. l'oseltamivir, le zanamivir).

La majorité des cas signalés antérieurement de personnes ayant contracté la grippe H1N1 ont pu se remettre complètement sans recourir à des soins médicaux ni à des médicaments antiviraux. Cependant, l'incidence des éclosions nous renseignent que le traitement à l'aide d'antiviraux pourrait être nécessaire, surtout pour les personnes qui présentent des symptômes modérés ou graves et celles qui risquent de subir des complications de la grippe (par ex. les personnes qui ont des troubles médicaux sous-jacents).

Pour les personnes atteintes, améliorez votre état et prévenez la propagation du virus en prenant les précautions suivantes:

  • demeurez à la maison si vous avez contracté le virus. Ne vous rendez pas au travail ni à l'école;
  • gardez au moins 1 mètre de distance entre les autres personnes;
  • reposez-vous et buvez beaucoup de liquide;
  • couvrez-vous la bouche et le nez avec un papier-mouchoir lorsque vous toussez ou éternuez. Jetez-le ensuite à la poubelle. Si vous n'avez pas de papier-mouchoir à votre portée, couvrez-vous le nez et la bouche avec votre manche ou vos mains. Lavez soigneusement vos mains par la suite;
  • lavez-vous les mains régulièrement avec du savon et de l'eau. Prenez soin de laver vos mains avec du savon pendant au moins 15 secondes. Utilisez un désinfectant pour les mains à base d'alcool si vous n'avez pas accès au savon ni à l'eau.

Il existe des façons de vous protéger contre le virus de la grippe H1N1. Recevoir le vaccin contre l'influenza juste avant la saison annuelle de la grippe (en général de novembre à avril en Amérique du Nord) représente de beaucoup la mesure de prévention la plus efficace. Les personnes qui séjournent dans des régions où il y a une éclosion du virus doivent prendre des précautions particulières pour réduire leur risque d'exposition au virus de la grippe H1N1. Voici quelques conseils pour prévenir la grippe:

  • évitez le contact étroit avec des personnes infectées et qui présentent des symptômes de grippe H1N1 (par ex. de la fièvre, une toux);
  • lavez-vous fréquemment et soigneusement les mains avec du savon et de l'eau. Pour pratiquer un bon nettoyage, vous devez vous laver les mains avec du savon et frotter pendant au moins 15 secondes. Utilisez un désinfectant à base d'alcool si vous ne pouvez pas vous laver les mains.

*Tous les médicaments ont à la fois une dénomination commune (un nom générique) et un nom de marque ou marque. La marque est l'appellation qu'un fabricant choisit pour son produit (par ex. Tylenol®).

One cause of IBS: SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)

You may be happy to hear that there are a small group of medical doctors out there who don’t brush off IBS as a psychological condition.

In fact, they believe they’ve found the cause of IBS and the cure. Their theory is that IBS is caused by an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the small intestine. This condition is known as SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

The doctor leading the SIBO theory is Dr. Mark Pimentel. He wrote this book about it.

    In most cases, a child's body, with the help of the immune system, will get rid of the virus over time. Antibiotics cannot treat a viral infection, so it's best to just make your child more comfortable. Children with weakened immune systems, transplants, HIV or AIDS, or congenital immunodeficiencies may have a more difficult time fighting adenovirus, so stronger treatment might be needed. (A congenital immunodeficiency is a condition a baby is born with that causes the immune system to not work properly. )

    If your child has a respiratory infection or fever, getting plenty of rest and taking in extra fluids are essential. A cool-mist humidifier (vaporizer) may help loosen congestion and make your child more comfortable. Be sure to clean and dry the humidifier thoroughly each day to prevent bacterial or mold contamination. If your child is under 6 months old, you may need to clear his or her nose with nasal saline drops and a bulb syringe.

    Don't give any over-the-counter (OTC) cold remedies or cough medicines without checking with your doctor. You can use acetaminophen to treat a fever (your doctor will tell you the proper dose); however, do not give aspirin because of the risk of Reye syndrome, a life-threatening illness.

    If your child has diarrhea or is vomiting, increase fluid intake and check with the doctor about giving an oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration.

    To relieve the symptoms of pinkeye, use warm compresses and, if your doctor recommends them, a topical eye ointment or drops.

    Most adenoviral infections last from a few days to a week. However:

    • severe respiratory infections may last longer and cause lingering symptoms, such as a cough
    • pneumonia can last anywhere from 2–4 weeks
    • pinkeye can persist for another several days to a week
    • more severe keratoconjunctivitis can last for several weeks
    • adenovirus can cause diarrhea that lasts up to 2 weeks (longer than other viral diarrhea episodes)

    There's no way to completely prevent adenoviral infections in kids. To reduce their spread, parents and other caregivers should encourage frequent hand washing, keep shared surfaces (such as countertops and toys) clean, and remove kids with infections from group settings until symptoms pass.

    Most of these adenoviral conditions and their symptoms are also associated with other causes. Call your doctor if:

    • a fever continues more than a few days
    • symptoms seem to get worse after a week
    • your child has breathing problems
    • your child is under 3 months old
    • any swelling and redness around the eye becomes more severe or painful
    • your child shows signs of dehydration, such as appearing tired or lacking energy, producing less urine or tears, or having a dry mouth or sunken eyes

    Remember, you know your child best. If he or she appears to be severely ill, don't hesitate to call your doctor right away.

    From its discovery until 2006, confirmed cases of Zika virus infection were rare, although cases were reported during the 60's in Africa and South-East Asia. Analysis suggested that the African and Asian strains emerged as two distinct lineages.

    The first outbreak outside of Africa and Asia was documented on Yap Island in the Federal States of Micronesia, in 2007.

    Clinical and serologic evidence indicate that 2 American scientists contracted Zika virus infections while working in Senegal in 2008. One of the scientists transmitted this arbovirus to his wife after his return home. Direct contact is implicated as the transmission route, most likely as a sexually transmitted infection since none of their four children contracted the virus.

    The largest outbreak of the Zika Virus began in October 2013 in French Polynesia, South Pacific with an estimated 28,000 infections. Outbreaks also occurred in Easter Island, the Cook Islands and New Caledonia.

    If you are mildly ill, stay home and avoid contact with other people until your symptoms are gone. This will help prevent the spread of the virus.

    If you are a person at high risk of flu-related complications, contact your health care provider. Tell them about your symptoms.

    See a health care provider immediately if you develop any of these symptoms:

    • shortness of breath
    • fast or trouble breathing
    • pain in your chest
    • blueish or grey skin colour
    • bloody or coloured mucous in your mouth or spit
    • sudden dizziness or confusion
    • severe or ongoing vomiting
    • a high fever (39°C and above) that lasts more than 3 days
    • low blood pressure

    Tell your health care provider about your flu symptoms over the phone before your appointment. That way, they can arrange to see you without exposing other people to the virus.

    Also see a health care provider if you are caring for a child who is sick with the flu and is:

    • not drinking or eating as usual
    • not waking up or interacting with others
    • irritable (not wanting to play or be held)

    Fluish Feeling Meaning and Causes of Flu-Like Sensation

    At times a person may feel unwell or is in discomfort without being able to identify any specific symptoms like nausea or pain. It is a generalized sensation that cannot be localized to a certain part of the body. This is commonly referred to as a fluish feeling or a flu-like feeling. The correct medical term for this sensation is malaise. The flu (seasonal influenza) is the most common recurrent ailment that humans experience throughout life. One of the main features of this viral infection is malaise which precedes the other symptoms and persists throughout the illness. Therefore it is only natural that most people describe malaise as feeling fluish or a flu-like sensation since they are very familiar with this sensation.

    There is no specific explanation for malaise or the fluish feeling. It is a sensation that cannot be definitely measured and may vary from person to person. Although subjective, some features that may be noted includes:

    • Fatigue (tiredness)
    • Dizziness or lightheaded
    • Changes in blood pressure
    • Changes in heart rate
    • Changes in blood glucose
    • Changes in blood gas levels
    • Nausea
    • Irritability

    The severity of these symptoms may vary from person to person and is also dependent on the underlying cause. However, it is important to note that a fluish feeling is not always due to the flu (influenza) or any related systemic infection. It may be experienced with a number of conditions like diabetes mellitus, heart attack, cancer or autoimmune diseases. Even in these instances, malaise may precede the onset of other more definitive symptoms.

    Therefore a fluish feeling should not be taken as a sign of the upcoming flu particularly in a person who is at high risk of developing other conditions. This especially applies to people over the age of 40 years, who are obese, with a history of cigarette smoking and family history of ailments like heart attacks, stroke, diabetes and cancer. The elderly need to be particularly cautious with regards to a fluish feeling.

    Malaise is a common symptom in a wide range of conditions. It may occur for a short period in acute diseases or acute flareups of chronic diseases. Sometimes malaise is persistent for much longer periods – even months and years.

    Infections are one of the most common cause of the fluish feeling even when it is not the influenza virus involved. It is the systemic infections, most of which are viral, that are more likely to contribute to malaise.

    • Influenza – seasonal flu and H1N1 (swine flu)
    • Lyme disease
    • Rhinovirus infection (common cold)
    • Malaria
    • HIV/AIDS
    • Chronic viral hepatitis
    • Tuberculosis

    There are various other systemic infections that cause cause malaise. The presence of a fever and swollen lymph nodes is a common indicator of an infection. Travelers to endemic areas, particularly in developing nations without proper vaccinations, should be cautious about malaise as it may be the first sign of an infection.

    Any condition that compromises heart function will lead to malaise. This includes changes to heart rate and rhythm. Blood can therefore not be adequately re-oxygenated and distributed throughout the body as is usually the case. Vascular conditions are less likely to cause malaise.
