    Hi liquorice,
    Hope you soon feel better. This sounds just like flu as you are feeling shivery and have aching limbs.
    Keep indoors in the warm and take Asprin or Paracetamol to ease the aches and pains. Hot water or milk with added honey and lemon are real soothing.
    Dont go outdoors until you feel much better.
    Flu is a more serious condition than a cold therefore you need to take it easy for a few days.
    All the best,

    Solofelix.

    That is how I feel when I have the flu. Do you have a fever?

    If you have a fever/and your chest still feels tight, you may want to call your doctor.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Apart from cough syrup from your Chemist you could try what we do when we have coughs.
    Cut a lemon into 4 bring to the boil in half pint water and simmer for 20 mins, dont peel the lemon. You can use 2 lemons if you like.
    Pour into a glass with 1 teaspoon of Honey and 2 or 3 cloves and sip slowely.
    You can reheat the lemon as needed. The cloves are just an added extra and nice but not essential.
