fever and lightheaded.

yesterday when i woke up i didnt feel right at all. all day i felt nauseous and tired and lethargic. then towards the night i started to feel really cold. i took my temperture and it read 100.3. i attempted to sweat it out but that did not work. upon awakening today i still had a slight fever and a pounding headache, which i also had yesterday. i decided to take 2 tylonol and then take a short nap. when i woke up my headache was gone and i took my temperture again and it read 96.5. why would my temp be so low??? i still feel really weak and lightheaded and almost as if my head is in a fog. is this just a cold or the flu? is it something i should be seriously worried about?

Re: fever and lightheaded.

You are probabaly just fighting the flu that is going around. Your fever is down because you took the Tylenol, which is designed to bring your fever down. I would stay warm, drink plenty of fluids, rest and try to keep yourself in bed with plenty of sleep. Hopefully it will go away in a few days. Keep a light diet.

Re: fever and lightheaded.

so is it ok that my temperture is down to 96 or 97 degrees? i usually run have a temperture of 98.7 or 99.1 so 96 and 97 seems a bit low to me.
