Intermittent fever of 101, body aches, and moderate pain in groin lymph nodes for 3 days. No other symptoms. Does this sound like a virus?

Yes and no: The first part of your description sounds like a classic viral syndrome: fever, body aches, but moderate pain in the groin (inguinal) lymph nodes could point to a more serious bacterial infection. I would recommend seeing your gynecologist or primary care provider to determine why you have the lymph node swelling. It may be viral, but it would be safer to get a physical exam to be sure.

Cough (Definition)

Up to you: If you feel better, that seems encouraging, but you may be experiencing symptoms of bacterial superinfection, which can be just as bad as a viral infection. I would call your doctor and run it by them before you decide on waiting on this

I have a headache it started last night Monday I had felt like I was gonna cough I think it was coming from the lungs I have body aches what do I got?

It might be Flu?: Muscle aches and Headaches can be caused by a virus like head cold (Flu). This is followed by a sore throat or running nose. If it is a virus infection, it should settle down in 5-6 days. If it gets worse, then you should go see your doctor. For now you could take Tylenol to get some relief.

Viral infection: It sounds like your son has a viral infection. As long as he does not have difficulty breathing or very high fever, giving him lots of fluids or pain/fever reducers maybe all you need to treat his symptoms.

My family and I have had recurrent cough/chest congestion and body aches over the past two months (every 2-3 weeks). Worrisome, or just the season?

My family and I have had recurrent cough/chest congestion and body aches over the past two months (every 2-3 weeks). Worrisome, or just the season?

Family illness: Why would this be "the seasons"? does this happen to your family every year at the same time for months? If not then it is likely an infection that your family is passing around to each member. You need to see the doctor as a family to help determine the cause and prescribe a treatment. This is not normal.

See doctor: You can take tylenol for the fever and cough syrup but with fevers that high you may have something serious like pneumonia. If your fevers persist or if you are short of breath at all see a doctor right away.

Viral illness: Your symptoms are consistent with flu, which commonly causes cough and body aches. Flu, short for influenza, is a specific viral infection. Influenza can cause any combination of symptoms including body aches, cough, fever, and chills. There are many viruses, other than influenza, that cause similar symptoms. Rest, drink plenty of fluids, treat body aches with acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen.

I have small hard lumps under my skin all over my body. I also have difficulty swallowing, chronic dry cough and body pain. What is this?

Arthritic disease or: Cough alone could be many things including asthma post nasal drainage, or acid reflux, but to put all the symptoms together it sounds like you may have a rheumatic disease such as lupus or schleroderma or a vascular disease. I recommend you see your primary care physician, and he or she will probably refer you to a pulmonologist or a rheumatologist.
