Likely viral illness: You probably have a viral illness - maybe the Flu - did you get your Flu shot this year? Keep yourself hydrated and take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for your fever & aches. If you develop a sore throat or have any problems breathing get yourself checked in an Urgent care or by your doctor.
