Blue, it sounds like your doctor made the right diagnosis and that you’re just a bit unlucky and not getting better as fast as you hoped. You have to remember that the flu is caused by a virus and that we don’t really have effective medication against it. That said, I suppose there is no harm in seeing a different doctor for a second opinion. Good luck.
