Hi Chris, answer to your question is YES. Actually in my book MS itself feels very like flu. Feel like I’ve had flu for about 6 years ago (minus runny nose etc)… and the worst of this is the fatigue.
My advice is to ‘flow with it’ as much as possible. A day or two in bed might help but if you can’t manage that try to have lots of rests. Remember Christmas is a very stressful time and MS does not like stress.
It is also possible that you have picked up a virus. Most people with MS have a hyperactive immune system, so when we pick up a virus our bodies do not react normally to it (because our immune systems are always in ‘battle mode’ anyway). So yes it’s possible you’ve got a virus.
Either way, rest, rest ,and then go and have a good rest.
