Unhappy Siiiick I need help

Hi I'm new but I need help. Tuesday I had a sore throat. Then the next day I started to feel achy and very tired. I went to the DR and she only spoke with me for less than 5 minutes (not very helpful). I don't have strep but I did have a 99F degree fever. Today I am finally feeling better, I just have the sore throat/neck.

My Q's are:
Is this a cold or flu?
How much longer until I get better?
Could this turn into a "stomach flu" or are they two separate illnesses?
If I feel better tomorrow (or the same as today) would it be a bad idea to go out for a little bit with my friends? I don't plan on drinking, I just want to get out of the house and feel like a normal person again.

Thank you all

Re: Siiiick I need help

Seems like you are down with the flu itself. I am presently having the same. Doctor diagnosed me with chest and throat infections and I am undergoing treatment using antibiotics for a week. If the doctor has not prescribed the same for you, it might not be anything to worry about. Be sure to take rest and drink lots of water. Going out with friends might be a little hard on your body even if you are feeling well. I suggest that you postpone the outing to the next weekend.

I wish you all the best to get well soon.
