I've felt like I've had a fever... But my temperature is in the normal range and my skin does not feel hot to the touch. I'm also very fatigued!

My temperature is 99.1. Is that within normal range?

Temp: Axillary(arm pit) temperatures are not very accurate. The question of fever is probably mute since you describe symptoms of infection where a fever would not be unexpected anyway. You are describing flu like symptoms for the most part. The burning when peeing could be from a urine infection though. Not knowing the patients age or other medical problems, it is probably a good idea to see a doc. ...Read more
