Question 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!

Re: First time Flu

What you have is normal

Drink plenty of water and make sure you do nothing to further agitate your throat. It will pass in time, with the upcoming winter also make sure you wrap up properly before going out to protect your body from the shift in temperature.

Take care,
