Maybe getting sick: Perhaps you are starting to come down with something. Rest, relax over the weekend. If feeling worse take your temperature. Then can take some acetaminophen for body aches, chills, fever. Treat symptoms of cold with antihistamine med. Theraflu for flu symptoms. See a Doctor if not better in 48 hours.
