| | First time Flu
I was feeling pretty sick two weeks ago and went to see the university doctor. She told me I had an upper respiratory infection and that there was nothing I could do but wait. Well, a week went by and I hadn't gotten any better, in fact I had gotten worse. I started having horrible fevers shooting up to around 103 and down to 95 spiratically, could not sleep for more than an hour at a time, would wake up in cold sweats, and was achey. I looked up flu symptoms online and it seems that I definitely had the flu, not what the doctor had said I had. It has now been another week and my fevers have subsided and I can sleep again, though now I am congested and have a sore throat. I have never had the flu before and am basically just curious what the usual order of operations is here. Is this sore throat the last of it? I really just want to be healthy for Thanksgiving next week... Any insight will be helpful. Thanks!
