A viral "prodrome". (pre event) the hot may be a fever and the shaking a chill...It can also signify a bacterial (more serious) infection.
1. Take your Temperature
2. Increase your fluid intake
3. if you start VOMITING and the fever is high contact your PCP (or whoever is "on call")
4. If high fever/chills/vomiting/ and you cannot reach a Medical Professional GO To ER!
Hope this helps
