I have low body temp of 35.5 C, red eyelids and chills. I think I have the flu. Do you agree. Please tell me if you think it might be more serious?

Many possibilities: Most likely cause for these symptoms are stress, minor hormonal changes (including those from pregnancy) and minor infections. The most serious potential cause for symptoms like these could be the beginning of bacteremia or sepsis. Would recommend seeing a doctor in person if the symptoms persist for greater than two weeks; sooner if you start developing other symptoms. ...Read more

Other symptoms: Sound like the early course of most stomach viruses. The pulse, resps and temp are all within expected limits. If he has taken in enough fluids to pee every 6 hours, is alert and able to respond well, you can monitor at home. If it persists or you get spooked by his look or pattern, take him to his regular doc during regular hours. The ER is often a poor place for a 6 yo with mild illness. ...Read more

I have sudden onset fever. Temp 101 and body aches, chills, but no cough or sore throat? Is this flu?
More info needed: While we can't diagnose this without more information, we can say that fever, body aches and chills are common symptoms of the flu. Since flu is prevalent now, we often begin flu treatment without a positive diagnosis- that is based on the symptoms and history. Antiviral treatment works best when started within 48 hours of symptom onset, so best to call the doctor as soon as flu is suspected. ...Read more
I am experiencing chills, body aches, sore throat after having braces tightened. No fever, temp is 98.7. Is this normal? About 12 hours so far
Maybe strep, flu, etc.: Ear and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep throat more accurately and start antibiotics. Maybe the braces tightening was a coincidence. ...Read more
