on christmas eve, i had a sore throat.. it started with feeling like there was mucus in the back of my throat, and it would burn just when i tried coughing it up, then it went to burning when i took a deep breath and then full blown sore throat.. then on Xmas day.. i woke up with a 102.3 degree fever... chills.. weakness.. headache... stuffy nose... runny nose.... burning nose...
and this has been going on since xmas morning..
i have taken my temperature alot over the past 3 days.. and it has never gone back up to 102.3... the highest its been was 101.2, now its 99.4
ive been taking this non asprin fever reducer/pain medicine (ripoff brand of tylenol i think) and i just found this tylenol nighttime flu medicine and took that... needless to say it dident help me sleep cause i am up now
should i consult a DR or should i just get rest (i have gotten a ton of rest the past 3 days) and drink lots of fluids? (ive been drinking ginger ale... lots of it)
btw.. im turning 19 next week... so im not in the groups of people that have been dying off because of the flu
