Question Any Pre-meds or nursing majors???

LOL, so I know enough about my GC'ers to know that there's gotta be someone out here with some medical knowledge....I'm really stubborn about going to the doctor so I thought, due to the unending nagging of some of my friends, i'd throw it out to you guys......

So monday night, I fall asleep at 10pm, wake up at 12, so cold that i couldn't stop shaking...BF comes in, wraps me up in comforter, rubs me down trying to warm me up and comments how hot my face is...all night long, can't warm up (wearing jeans, a tshirt and a hoodie) toss and turn toss and turn, wake up about every 2 hours, body aches head to toe..... Wake up about 9am, covered in sweat, feel fine, sore throat, dry mouth, MONSTEROUS headache, stand up to leave, dizzy, fall back over.Sleep for a bit, wake up about 12:30, drive home, take temp its 103.4. Take some nyquil, lay down, fall asleep, wake up, freezing cold at about 6:30, temp is 104.2. Mom calls nurse, she tells me to take 3 advil every 6 hours until fever goes down. Fever bounces between 102 and 103 rest of night, morning comes, i wake up covered in sweat. Sore throat, pounding headache (NOTE, NO PUKING) Low temp (98-97). Later that evening 101 temp, headache, kind of cold. Today, haven't been able to keep my mouth moist, headache, my legs feel really tight, i've got a temp between 100-101 and i just sneezed and gave myself a bloody nose.......

Any ideas? is this just the flu or what??
Note: I've not thrown up at all, any my temp has stayed at 102 or lower since tuesday night **i didn't have a thermometer monday night, but I'd be willling to guess it was up at least 101-102 *if not higher*(when comparing it to tuesday night)

EH, whatever :-)
Just thought I'd throw that out for some discussion......

I am a nursing student, but my guess is totally my own opinion! It sounds to me like the flu. With a fever, some body aches with headaches, and changing from cold to hot...sounds flu like to me. I apparently had an upper respiratory flu and had most of the same symptoms except I had tons of coughing. If things haven't gotten back to normal yet, get yourself to the doctor!

you had a temperature that high for that long and NO ONE told you to get to a hospital or doctor ASAP?!?!?!?!?! *shakes head*

That's dangerous. If you are still having symptoms, ESPECIALLY a fever (regardless of how high it is now, a fever is a fever) I'd see a doctor right away and tell them for all the reasons you listed here. IF they cannot get you in for whatever reason, go to the emergency room. People have been dying of the flu lately, it's a very bad strain this season. Those having already gotten the flu shot are even getting it (though not half as bad). DONT play around with your health, ESPECIALLY with the symptoms you have described..........

I'm not technically a nursing student yet. I just graduated in business management, though I have had biochemistry and anatomy thus far with A's. I'll be taking physiology and nutrition in the spring, clinical microbiology in the summer, and will be starting the actual 16 month BSN accelerated program in the Fall. I also volunteer 8 hours a week in a hospital currently, will be observing in the heart cath lab shortly, and have done observations in doctor's offices already.

Again please use common sense and see someone SOON.
