2/22 this year I went to ER after a couple of days of being sick. Diagnosed with influenza based on symptoms even though the quick test was negative. I was on Tamiflu for 5 days.

On 3/8 I was back at the ER for panic attack and tested positive for influenza A and B. Is that odd or is it common to remain positive?

I'm wondering if like with antibiotics, there are resistant strains of influenza. Perhaps your A and B was resistant to Tamiflu. ???

Hopefully a wiser voice than mine will chime in and give you better, more biologically informed info.
