Chronic Flu symptoms for over 4 weeks.
My muscles (especially hips) ache and pain terribly as if I'm getting flu, but never actually get the flu. I feel like death and can't do anything strenguous. Is there a virus going around?

Mich, it does sounds like you have a viral infection. The best would be to take anti-inflammatories, drink lots of water and not to do strenuous exercise. If it doesn’t clear up within the next 2 weeks or so, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
