Starts with a cough, sore throat and swollen glands. Then a head cold. Slight fever. I've been poleaxed. I've coughed so much my ribs are really painful - precious little sleep.No sense of taste and living on yoghourt. Has anyone else come down with this? I'm loth to call it flu but it's not just a cold either. Has anyone else got this? How long does it last?
