HIGH FEVER and flu symptoms! Terrified!
« on: July 09, 2014, 03:17:55 AM »
Hello all,

Just this Monday I had the most unfortunate incident in my life. My laptop and phone got stolen from me. To make the long story short, it made me so anxious and mad.

A few hours after the incident, my throat started to feel scratchy and my voice was a bit strange. I started to have this mild cough which persists today. My nose also started to feel runny.

Yesterday, I felt some slight fatigue. My shoulders were heavy and my body was aching a bit. I also kept sneezing. All day and all night, I was also burning up. :( I've been sneezing a lot too.

I took my temperature regularly and the thermometer reading flucutuated between 37.5 C to a whopping 38.1 C! :(

I read that common colds usually don't get a high fever! Now I am really worried that this might be something else!

This morning was also a bit okay -- I had bouts of my body heating up and feeling weak. I still sneeze and my nose is mildly congested.

To be honest, I've never felt any flu like symptoms in 5-6 years. This is the first time in a long time and I am immensely scared it could be something else! :(

That's not a high fever.  That's BARELY a low-grade fever.

Probably just a virus. You could also call your doctor if you are concerned.

Like MollyFin said, that's not a high fever. Probably just a virus that will have to run its course. If it is a virus then a doc can't help. Relax... you'll feel better soon.
