30yr old female running a 103 fever chest congestion and body aches = took 1 extra strength tylenot about 1/2 hr ago =- what should I do
Do : Do not know if this is from a viral infection. I cannot diagnose the cause. Ensure that you are getting lots of fluids (not soda, coffee or tea) like water. Get rest. Your temperature is fairly high. If your temp increases to 104 - then it is really important that you get seen. Even if it does not increase, if you have any chest tightness, chest pain, difficulty breathing, wheezing, you start bringing up colored sputum, the fever lasts more than a few days you need to get your lungs checked out. If you are not allergic to nsaid's consider use of Motrin or Aspirin to help bring down your fever. The fever is likely causing the generalized aches. A tepid bath can also help to bring down your temperature. Your temp is high enough, that you might have a loved one help you out, until you are doing better. If you take any turns for the worse - you need to get evaluated. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
