Flu: First question is did you get the flu shot? This sounds like the flu. However you can go to your doctor and have a sole test done to check. Unfortunately you are outside the treatment window if it is the flu. Temps of 104 are serious and seeing your doctor would be prudent. Hope you feel better. ...Read more

Day 6 of 100+\- fever, severe body aches and chills, congestion and I had a severe headache that lasted 4 days and finally passed. Flu test negative.

Sounds like flu: The test for flu is not very reliable. The CDC reports it is 40-70% sensitive, which means that a negative tests are falsely negative in 30-60% cases. Most clinicians report that the test is negative in ~50% of patients with clinical symptoms consistent with flu.
