Fever

It's amazing how miserable a few extra degrees can make you feel.  Yesterday I started to feel very sick.  Last night when I went to bed I had the chills so bad that my teeth were chattering.  I have barely been able to eat anything all day.  Throughout most of the day I have been alternating between chills and sweating beads.   I ache all over, and when I go up or down stairs my legs are like jelly.  Not fun at all.

This is probably the sickest I've been in a long time.  But I'm not often sick, so that's not saying much.   I do seem to be on the upswing now, hopefully my recovery is just around the corner.

Sorry to hear about that.  Fever is a damned irritating thing.  Rest and relax as best you can.  Drinking a bit of juice or white soda(not diet) could be a good choice.  Water is also handy to stay hydrated.

At my worst, I could barely drink water.  But it's a little easier to drink now.

Sounds like you got a case of the wonderful summer flu that pops up from time to time
My sympathies..I've had that and it is for sure not fun. But look on the bright side..you're
pretty much set against not having it for quite a while now. :)

Summer Flu sucks.  How long does it normally last?

Pretty much about as long as 'regular' flu. a week or 10 days..it usually goes
away quick though..you'll start feeling better almost immediately. :) Just rest and
drink lots of liquids. :)

Mawr. Being sick in the summer is horrible. I hope you get better soon. Don't forget: get plenty of rest and lot of liquids. Also, over-the-counter flu medications helps.

My wife and I just got over something like that.  You'll feel like shit for a few days to a week, but it'll get better.

I had that same cold/flu a few months back...and yeah, sucks major bawls and not at all in a good way. I stayed under a blanket for a week watching old movies and self medicating.
 * offers a warm mug of chicken broth and a good book*   Get well soon, we're all pulling for ya!
