Possible flu: Persistent symptoms like this could be caused by influenza & a test (nasal swab) would be helpful , especially to guide you regarding avoiding contact with others. If the test is negative you probably need a full evaluation for other causes, though you could wait a couple more days if no abdominal pain, no urinary problems, & you are able to keep fluids down & not get dehydrated
