So one day i was in school feeling perfectly fine and I mean not even the slightest bit sick. Later that day, towards the evening, i started to feel sore and I thought 'uh oh'. I knew I was getting a fever. Within an hour of that first sign, I had a full blown fever..chills, so achey I couldnt even walk or even move for that matter. My temp was up to a little over 102. I was a bit worried but I figured if my temp didnt lower by the morning, I would have to go to the doctor. I hadnt taken any kind of cold pills, or pain relief, and sleeping that night was horrible. When I woke up to get ready for school ( I couldnt miss, I had reviews for finals -_-) I felt a lot better. Just a little sore but my temp was right back to normal..it was strange, usually when I get a fever it lasts a couple days. I have tried looking up on this on the internet but I cant find anything. Some information will be helpful! .. oh and I didnt eat anything different that day, I usually eat the same foods.:confused:

  • It is quite possible you had a 12 hour bug. Yeah, it sounds weird, but it does happen!! Much like the 24 hour bug, the 12 hour bug takes everything from the 24 hour one, and shoves it all in in half the time. That might explain the aching so bad walking was basically impossible. If you've felt fine since, I don't see a need to worry, but be on the safe side. Take it easy for atleast the next week or so. If these symptoms come back, see your doctor.

I was at work, started to feel cold so I checked my temp and it was 99.9 kept climbing, went to 102.5 before my shift was over. I took 2 Ibuprofen sometime near the beginning because I was achy. It hurt to walk down the hall. The highest the fever got was 103.2 - home. Slept a lot the next morning and now it is the next evening and no fever.
