See a doctor!: High fever, chills, malaise, tired muscles could signal flu. But mucus with discharge could be more than a flu, and needs to be evaluated by your doctor. If your mucus is colored yellow or green, see a doctor immediately! You'll feel better, and find out whether you have bacterial or viral infection brewing. Hope you feel better soon!
