Just the Flu?

Hey All,

I'm just trying to figure out if what I'm experiencing are purely flu-symptoms or something worse. If anybody has any insight or has experienced similar...I'd love to know so that I can stop psyching myself out.

-My stomach is woozy. When I dont eat, it's woozy. When I do eat (ate pasta last night because I thought maybe eating would help) I feel nauseous. Liquids seem fine--I actually feel pretty dehydrated.

-I can't seem to focus--either I'm light-headed or in a sort of 'fog'.

-Shaky, sometimes have hot flashes (I'm nowhere near menopause), and am a little constipated. Also, the last couple times I've had a bowel movement there is some white..mucus?

This has been going on for about a week; maybe only 5 days.

Thank you!
