Husband got sick 5 days ago with fever, chills, back ache, headache. Fever is gone but has headache, feels "spacy" throwing up, and just sick. Flu?
Can happen.: Cold can be from various reasons like allergies, vasomotor rhinitis, and infections. If the cause is infection then fever is likely. Fever is either absent or a low grade with most of the virus infections, except with viruses like flu. If a bacterial infection is involved on top of the cold then fever can be high. ...Read more

Already had flu this season but got sick suddenly yesterday. Within few hours I was coughing, stuffy, chills, major headache and 39c temp. Flu again?
Nothing Makes Sense: Picture a virus wearing a ski mask and you can't tell what it is.The only way to really tell if you had the real flu the first time would be to take a blood test or nose swab at that time.Maybe you did/maybe you didn't.And this time maybe you do and maybe you don't.One thing for sure, very unlikely to get the same virus twice in the same year. unless its"bimodal,"having two symptomatic peaks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sick: You were just at the doctor today but did not ask about your symptoms.

If i am very sick (102.1 fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, slight body aches) can that delay my period at all?
Possibly: Yes there are reports that have shown that a fever can delay ovulation and then subsequently delay menstrual bleeds that occur after a delayed ovulation. So you might not be that regular this month. But this does not occur in everyone the same way. Your fever might not have any effect on your menstrual period. ...Read more
Hi!! I've been sick lately. With fever chills cough and stuffy nose. But since earlier I've been sweating with no fever. Normal? 33wks pregnant.
URI and pregnancy: It sounds like you might have an upper respiratory infection. As you are 33 weeks pregnant, I would call your OB or midwife and let them know. If you have not had a flu shot, I would definitely go in and make sure it is not influenza. Any fever greater than 100.8 in the last trimester of pregnancy should be investigated. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) saline nasal spray and most antihistamines are safe in pregnancy ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chills: Chilling is the body's way of increasing the body temperature when you are about to develop fever. The fever may not be present while you are chilling. The other thing that causes chilling is exposure to cold. In that case you should be aware of the association. There are some women who experience chilling as part of menopause. ...Read more
