Can flu make amxiety worse?

I've had really bad flu for 2 days now and I'm terrified something really bad is going to happen to me as I've been getting stomach cramps too. I keep getting hot and cold flashes, feel sick and dizzy and no energy at all. Since I've had anxiety it's like I've had to learn how to cope with stuff like this all over again

hi amy, if you have the flu, which is really bad in itself, but with anxiety as well, must be awful, there is so much flu about at the moment, one of our friends who has anxiety as well has had an awful low time, as the flu gets better your anxiety will ease as well,the hot and cold flashes which are all part of the flu, cramps as well,keep yourself warm , drink loads of fluids , paracetamol to bring your temperature down, it normally goes within a week, hope this has helped. love jasper xx

I think mine is hormone related. I have no fever, as my mom says because moms just know, but feel like my body tenperature is haywire and also slightly dizzy. >.<

Yes - that good old flu all right! Jasper6848 has it dead right. Paracetamol, lots of fluid, rest and snuggle up in bed. My daughter and most of her friends has it at the moment too. A weird thing i heard too (and it seems to be working!) is Vicks menthol rub on the soles of your feet suppressing a cough so you get a good nights sleep! Put warm socks over the top so it doesn't rub off on the sheets though.
