In brief: You feel terrible...
And you have a rapid heart rate, signs of an infection (cough, urinary tract symptoms, severe abdominal pain), a fever or low temperature, and general sense of either malaise or that you are dying.
You may be delirious or you might be cogent... But generally it isn't something that feels like a bad cold - you are deathly ill.
