Unhappy BEWARE Boys & Girls (Health)

In my 50+yrs of life, I've never had anythin bite me like this has:

Tues 3pm: Get chillled, freezin & pourin sweat, go home early 101.1* temp
Wed. am 100.1* temp, Dr.s appt 2pm (Out of my pocket, no ins.), says I have SERIOUS upper respritory infection, says "VERY CONTAGIOUS" gives me a 4 day dose of steroid & 7 day dose of antibiotic and told to stay home till fever breaks.
Thurs-Sun: acquire a visious cough that when it hits feels like my forehead is gonna explode. Temp ranged from 99.9* - 102.4* Sunday.
Monday: Am Temp 99.5* appt. with VA, same senerio, lungs are clear, but SERIOUS upper respritory infection, gives me a 5 day dose of Z-pack, says if that don't knock it, its viral, and just has to go its course. Given "Confined to quarters" note through Friday.....says I'm HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS!!!

This SUKS.............I've never been down this long for a fever.

I PRAY nobody on here gets it or has it, you don't want it!!!

Same here. I hate to say it, but I haven't been to a "doctor" in a few years. I go to a clinic and get a physical from a nurse every 6 months, but only because I have to, lol.

I know the feeling man...

Get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids & stay away from public places (so you don't catch anything else while you're recovering)

Strange, I'm 50 years old and just the other day on Sunday Stu (aka beef08) was over helping in my daughters garage. when he left I went out for a bike ride with my sister in law came back home and went to dinner with my lady, was feeling fine until Monday morning when I rolled out of bed and hit the floor, Man I felt so drowsy and sweating profusely, I tried to get my balance and bam, again down again for the count, I stayed home, water/hot soup with lots of hot spices/orange sherbet icecream/ and so on, I finally felt a little better to log on the board tonight, But still a little queezy, I will know tomorrow if I am okay.

could be a virus going around or those dam skitters are already out bitting and its not even summer yet alone spring, they boogers carry some bad crap all the time. goodluck and let's make it through this.

Sounds like a typical case of the flu or similar infection. Doesn't sound any different or more/less serious than any other case of it. Not really sure whats with the BEWARE BOYS AND GIRLS topic title, all bold text and excessive caps lock. Have you lived in a bubble your whole life and never had a cold? You have what everyone else usually gets many times in their life. If you can go to the doctor, it isn't that bad. 102 is a normal fever for an adult and it just means your body is fighting it. If the antibiotics don't make it go away, you'll have to suffer through it since there is no medication for viral infections. Turning it into a dramatic production won't make it any better.

There fever will go up and down every day. When the fever stays down for 24hrs straight, you will no longer be contagious. So don't go coughing on people just cause the fever is down when you wake up tomorrow. 24 hours of normal temp.

Also, don't be too surprised if you end up with an inner ear infection after this is done. It will make you dizzy and nauseous for a week or two. You'll feel somewhere between drunk and hung over. AntiVert is a medication they can perscribe that will help a little if that happens.
