Bit by a fly

I was bitten by a fly a few days ago several times. Since then, I've developped into what appears to be a cold, but it's quite the harsh cold at that! I'm wondering if the fly had anything to do with it?

Currently, I have:

- Chills
- Fever
- Cough
- Sore throat
- Leaky nose
- Migraine
- Hurting ears
- Nausea
- the taste to vomit
- difficulty holding things tightly
- pain behind the eyes
- fatigue
- difficulty breathing, as it hurts and it's uncomfortable
- "popping" ears
- random pains in toes and elbow joints

Is this a normal cold that's hit hard, the flu, or something else?

I've tried cough syrup and medicine for the cold but they haven't had any noticeable effect in the last two days.

This looks a lot like Tularemia / Rabbit Fever, now that I search: http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/t/tularemia/symptoms.htm

Is this possible?
