Flu. Can it make you go crazy?

Hi people.  Just seeing if this has happened to anyone else.   Last couple of days i have been a bit listless and today i woke up and knew i have the flu. The whole day i have been totally manic. I can't seem to sit still. I have so much weird energy that i feel shaky and have that awful butterflies in the stomach weird euphoria feeling. Does anyone else get like this if they have the flu?

Hey there @Calmblueocean, this is very interesting. How are you feeling now? I wonder if anyone else has experienced this. Did it level out at all?
