Flu like symptoms

It seems at night I get flu like symptoms. Body aches, feeling blah, just general bone aches. Like I am coming down with the flu or running a low grade temp. However, I am not running any kind of temp and it has been going on for months. Usually I feel fine during the day but when the evening hits so do the body aches and general feeling of illness.

Ever heard of anything like this? Could it be physical, mental, or nothing?

Thanks!

Off and on I get "other" types of symptoms but nothing in a pattern or anything like that. If I do get any night sweats I usually blame it on menopause. I have bee surgical menopause for 5 years and if I am really stressed out or get really upset I will go through night with sweats, but it passes. No, I can't say I get joint pain.

But, I have had a signigicant amount of breast pain. One day I had a severe pain in my left breast (like a clogged milk duct) I even had a fever. But I had a mamogram (mammogram) within a week following and everything was fine. I waited about a month or 2 then went to the doctors and he said all was fine too. Other than that, nothing more significant.

My father has these similar symptoms.  Have you found out what is causing it?  He has not.  Also, his hemoglobin and hemacrit levels are low.

sounds like fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. Go see a neurologist...but for God's sake get a real good one. He may prescibe neurontin and antideppresants (sp) this was a problem for me too.
I also found out from an endicronologist that I have PCOS and prediabetes. My hormones are all off. check into this.
