I know it's a little late for an answer, but run down is the best idiomatic term in English for this condition.

Oh, that's interesting, Poli, thank you.

How would you use it?

Would it these sentences be valid?:

- I think I have a flu. I feel ran down.
- I'm running down. I'm getting sick.
- My body aches, it's running down with a flu.

Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
I feel run down.
I'm feeling run down.
I'm run down. (Omitting 'feel' is OK, but you'll hear the phrase with the verb 'feel' more often than not. We seldom use the progressive "running down".)

Past tenses:
He was feeling run down, but now he's better.
John felt run down after spending too much time working out.
She was run down after a stressful week.

Use 'feel run down' for all other conjugations.


My body aches. It's coming down with the flu.
