Hi. With the paucity of other symptoms, I believe that it is very hard to tell if you really have flu or not. Influenza is characterized classically by fever, body weakness, joint pains, and can be accompanied by some cough and colds. If you are experiencing any of these then flu is a possibility. Are you having any burning while urinating? Do you have a cold or cough? How much is the fever? What other symptoms are you having? Are you on any medications currently? You could take some over the counter antinausea medications or antacids and anti pyretic medications to help with your symptoms of nausea and fever. Drink plenty of fluids. I would still suggest that you have yourself looked at by your doctor to have a more accurate assessment, and also to receive proper treatment and medical advise. Let us know if you need further information. Regards.

i woke up with severe pain in my side where my liver is; my gall bladder is gone. then throughout the day i had diarrhea a few times, severe pain in my knees, my legs really ache bad, and it hurts like i'm on my period; but i have had a hysterectomy; and i only have one ovary. I have been trying to do the atkins diet; with lots of fruits and vegetables. I just went back on estratest a couple weeks ago; after being off it for 8 months.

Robin what is your experience with estratest?

Comment by Robin Moore on Tue 14, Sep 2010 09:32pm:
i went on it 5 years after my hysterectomy around 41, it got rid of the hot & cold sweats; and helped alot with sex. i only quit because of the cancer risk. but my mammogram came out OK. and i can't stand the hot & cold sweats and went back on it. but; i've been on metoprolol for 2 years; because of shortness of breath and heart racing. and; 4 days ago i woke up with my heart vibrating or racing really fast; and pain in my chest and shortness of breat; and i still have it; just not as bad today

Oh I am sorry to hear that. I am little worried about the cancer risk. Are these adverse effects proven?

Hi can you give more information on the drug and how to use it. I really liked this site. Good place for people to share experiences.

Comment by Robin Moore on Tue 14, Sep 2010 11:18pm:
Estratest is a hormone pill, with estrogen and testosterone in it; I take the lowest dose. I cut it in half; and take half a day. Metoprolol is for high blood pressure, heart and veins. Metoprolol is good to take right after or during a heart attack. I've never had problems with BP. My doctor gave it to me; because i was having breathing problems and my heart kept racing. She didn't really say why she gave me the pill. I never get pressure on my face or get headaches.

Last night, quite suddenly I had the chills so bad that I was profusly shaking (body and teeth) that it affected my breathing and my body stiffened. I had also already been sleeping with my heating pad and even holding tight this heating pad on high would not stop the chills. They lasted about 15 minutes or so. Then about one hour or less I had starting sweating incredibly. I took my temputure and it was about 101.5 which my regular temp runs little bit lower than normal temp. I am perfectly fine this morning. Over the past year I would say, but now happening a little more frequently, I would get flu like symptoms, aches and weak. I would go to bed with heating pad and wake up perfectly fine the next day. These symptoms increased of late which seemed to be perhaps from stress and exhaustion due to overloaded schedule and stress. What do you think is wrong with me? I have a hernia and thought perhaps it burst last night but no pain and tummy looks flat as normal. I am in excellent health, exercise and am 119-123 lbs and about 5'5". And am 50 years old, still regularly monthly cycles???
