I ended up going to the doctor yesterday mostly because I had a burning sensation in my throat. I thought I had strep and figured that I'd better try and get in on a Saturday instead of suffering until Monday. When I was examined I found I had a 103.5 temperature and did not have strep but instead I had the flu.
Doc said I was on day 3 of the 5 day flu. I would have to take Monday and depending on how I feel possibly Tuesday off of work. Today thank goodness I am sitting upright, my back is very achy due to practically sleeping for about 24 hours.
