See a doctor: This no longer sounds like influenza. If flu to begin with this can predispose you to secondary acute bacterial pneumonia which can be potentially very severe and even fatal. Please go to an emergency room asap and be examined and treated. Do not wait. Hope you are better soon.

Phlebitis & others: Pain and inflammation of the leg veins is called phlebitis. When this occurs it can be painful to the touch. The worrisome condition for which you need to get checked is a blood clot (deep venous thrombosis, dvt). This can be checked with a duplex ultrasound of your leg veins to make sure there is flow that is not blocked by a clot in your vein. There are many reasons for swelling so get checked!

Depends on your hist: It all depends on your medical history. Your medical history (how this all developed, what medical issues you normally have, what medicines you take, lifestyle considerations), is what lets your doctor know what risk factors you have and allows him/her to narrow the list of possibilities down and come up with just a few possible diagnoses to choose from. Looking at the rash helps too.

Rest: It sounds more like cervical radiculopathy, or nerve symptoms originating from your neck. Many of these improve on their own. Some of these also cause shoulder and rotator cuff problems. Visit your friendly neighborhood orthopod or sports medicine doc so we can give you an individualized answer after an examination.

Last night I had major tingling all over the palm or my right hand. I do computer based work all day and ipad at night. Is this carpal..?

Hand numbness: There is a good chance that what you are describing is carpal tunnel syndrome. If this continues wear a wrist splint at night. If this does not solve the numbness then you need to discuss this with your doctor.
