I'm a healthcare worker. Treat flu every year. Get the flu shot every year. Feel like shite for a day or so after the shot.

Had something similar around Dec 22-Jan 2. Christmas day was brutal. Still lingering but I'm mostly over it. Felt like a really bad sinus infection at first....everyone around me at work had it (I work and live in the Memphis area) and my wife had it. I knew it was coming even though I got the flu shot this year.
Before December, I hadn't had the flu in years. Whatever this was topped any sickness I have had as an adult.
