Rest, hydration and: Anti-pyretics. What you described is consistent with flu. Did you get vaccination for flu?. Get some rest while you have fever, take enough fluids and tylenol for fever. Make sure you do not overdose on tylenol (acetaminophen) if you decided to take over the counter cold medications that may have tylenol in them.
