Possible influenza: Your symptoms sound very suspicious for influenza, and since it is epidemic around the country right now, that takes it to the top of the list. It is not unusual for symptoms to persist for up to 10 days. If you are past the first couple of days, there are no meds that are going to do much to shorten that duration. Take Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) for body aches, listen to your body and get extra rest. ...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.

Most clinicians report that the test is negative in ~50% of patients with clinical symptoms consistent with flu. Your symptoms are consistent with the flu, and it is most likely cause of these symptoms during winter months in a young adult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The last couple nights I have been getting fever, chills and headache stiff neck and body aches. I feel ok during the day except for slight headaches ?
These are worrisome: symptoms, and you should not be reassured because they seem to improve during the day. Many infections, which these symptoms are suggestive of, wax and wane and are cyclically worse during the day or night. I suggest your seek medical evaluation ASAP either through your Doctor's office or Urgent Care. The worse case scenario, meningitis, needs to be excluded. Good wishes:) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe strep,flu,etc.: Nose 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 and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of strep symptoms. ...Read more

Probable influenza: Yes, this certainly could be the 'flu' because u may have 'muted' your fever with over the counter 'cold' medicines that contain tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin/NSAIDs like motrin.

So I would start with a flu swab-which should tell u very quickly if u have the flu, then give u antivirals to help. Call ur doc! ...Read more
