Flu without Sore throat and cough???

Tonight around 5pm I started to have a headache, then the chills came, it got worse and then came the achy feeling, and the slight fever 100.6 . . I have NO sore throat or NO cough.. can it still be the flu without those 2 symptoms? I feel like a bus hit me.. VERY achy, very chilly, just feel yucky.. but the flu says something about sore throat and dry cough.. I don't have those, could I still have the flu?

Yes, it could still be the flu.

I feel very similar!! Only, the biggest thing that concerns me is I have a lump (underneith the skin, about the size of a walnut, but only raises the skin 1/8 of an inch), visable to the naked eye, on my neck (the right side) There is now a smaller (size of a pea), not visually noticibly lump just under/next to it (you can feel it though). For the past ten days, i've been extremely tired, feverish, and my Body aches horribly (entire body--The being hit by a bus is a perfect description). The only other thing is whenever i bend down, or stand back up, i get lightheaded with a pounding pressure (only when im coming back up, Also happens when i cough). People i know just say its the flu, but the lumps are strange, My throat isnt sore, and i cant feel them on the inside, they feel more like a bruise. (As if i have been hit over the head and it leaves a large knot, only in my neck) And i am much to tired to wait 40 minutes for the bus (each way) and wait 2 hours in Urgent Care, only to come home and not sleep before work (which i also cant miss)
