The flu or a relapse?

Hello! I do have an appt to see a GP tomorrow but would like your advice, since GPs won’t necessarily be able to spot MS. I’ve had what I think might be the flu for the last two weeks:

Extreme exhaustion and loss of appetite
Freezing cold (even with an electric blanket)
Sore throat, ears and eyes

My skin has also been so sore (head to toe), which I believe can be an MS symptom; my balance has also got worse.

Any advice would be so welcome so I can go into the GP’s armed with information.

Thanks guys, lucyh xx

The fact that you’ve (presumably) been taking paracetamol etc and it’s had no effect on the cold/flu symptoms might be relevant…? Whatever the outcome, you can make sure you get the flu jab next year (or maybe you’ve already had it?)

Thanks so much @cameron….some of what you’ve said probably falls into the no-brainer category and I should have thought of it…it’s hard to think straight when you’re not feeling well!! Thanks again.
