Evaluation: After 14 days of these symptoms it is reasonable to obtain medical evaluation. Although there are some viral infections that can have sx's that last a long while.

Sounds: like our old" friend" INFLUENZA....Take Tylenol or a NSAID for the fever/aches...drink lots of fluids...REST and if it goes into a third week have a hands on exam by your PCP (Primary Care Provider) WHO SHOULD ALSO KNOW what viruses are active in your community. Hope this is helpful..FEEL BETTER Dr Z
