I am battling chest congestion, annoying cough, high fever with body aches and chills. What could it be?

Could be pneumonia.: I don't recommend that you battle this all by yourself. You should see a doctor. If that's impractical--it is Christmas eve--I'm sure one of our Health Tap doctors would be happy to do a virtual consult with you. A full audiovisual consult is a better choice than a text only consult in a case like this. Sorry you're feeling so bad. - (

Fever: Menstrual cycles do not directly causes fever. If you are getting recurrent episodes of fever then this needs to be evaluated. Start with a primary care physician who can begin the evaluation

Headache? Urinary or other genital symptoms? Abdominal pain? Skin pain or irritation anywhere? Exposure to people with illness?

The: The symptoms you describe are consistent with a common cold or flu. Supportive care will help with your symptoms. This includes maintaining adequate hydration, taking analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil for pain and/or fever, medications aimed at specific symptoms (i.E dayquil), and plenty of rest. If your symptoms worsen or persist, or the abdominal pain is still present you should see your doctor. Best of luck.

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. It sounds like you don't have a thermometer. However if you are shivering with chills you likely have rigors and a high fever. I would either go to an acute care clinic or an er. Hope you feel better soon.

Pain in the neck right under the jaw, sore throat, chills, body aches, high fever.102.4 what could be wrong? Sould I go to the doctor?

Probably: This is particularly true if you have had anything wrong with your teeth or gums. Infections originating in these structures can progress down the planes of the neck and become life-threatening. Get this looked at. Hope you are better soon.

I've had a fever for 4days and the lowest it's been is 99, highest was 104 but its not breaking. Fatigue, body aches, chills. Should I be scared!

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.

Are you on levoquin?: Levoquin is an antibiotic associated with achelles tendon rupture, so if you are not, then there is not much in common with ankle swelling/pain and flu illness.

I started having the chills, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, and fever. The back of my neck has been hurting very bad. Could I have mono?

I started having the chills, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, and fever. The back of my neck has been hurting very bad. Could I have mono?

Possibly: Since you are running a fever and are in general not feeling well. I recommend that you go to your family doctor or to a walk-in clinic. You should have your diagnosis confirmed. Having a stiff neck can be part of mono but it could also be part of something more serious and I think that you should definitely be checked out by a medical professional this morning.

Infection: High fever, body aches, back pain are the pieces of the same puzzle. Urinary tract infection may be one of the causes, however, simple flu can present with similar symptoms. You will need to see doc to sort things out.

2 months after fever and weakness typhi dot test is negative while widal test is positive. Oral thrush and body aches, No fever. High RBC high wbc.

Suspect other cause: TyphiDOT IgG or IgM is reported to be 100 percent accurate for identifying an acute infection. If the IgM test alone was done, it could be that the test needs to be repeated. If you clinically appear to have typhoid fever your doctor will want to retest or treat. See your doctor, you may have another type of infection
