    shit man.. since january i have had a cold, then 2 weeks later the fullon 104degree fever, and now, not 1 month later i am getting sick again... it just doesn't seem to go away... or actually it just seems to get you down and then you are more susceptable(sp) to other strains... i think lifting has alot to do with it, pulls your immune system down....

    Towards the end of your second week Start lifting again lightly. As long as you can comfortably handle weights then do it. But usually after 2nd week you should be on the better path.
    If you feel the symptoms still then probably Take it easy of do very very light workouts low intensity.

    One of my friends went to the doctor and was diagnosed with the flu and they said 4 to 6 weeks... I had the flu for little more than 2 or 3 so it probably depends on your immune system

    That happens to me if I don't eat right. I'm pretty sick right now. I had a bad reaction to some herbal energy samples.
