I just slept for more than 48 hours.. have had a sore throat all that time.. hurts to swallow..
I haven't eaten for more than 3 days.. other symptoms: fatigue, NO headaches, hot sweat on my forehead but just a couple times, a bit of chills so I stayed under blankets most of the time, slight feeling of nausea or dizziness after a few minutes out of bed..
Am I gonna die?

  • I'm still alive! Finally had a slice of pizza and an avocado smoothie.. I still can't walk very far or very fast.. I have to sit down when I get dizzy and want to throw up.. I feel ok as long as I remain sitting or lying down.. my sore throat is gone.. I've never encountered a flu like this.. the fatigue/insomnia & lack of appetite reminds me of the dengue fever I had more than a dozen years ago.. it took a month to begin recovering from it...

  • Sounds like the flu or possibly strept throat to me. It's most likely some kind of infection like that, and I don't think you're going to die :p but it's best to go see a doctor anyways, because if it's bacterial it could get worse without antibiotics. Hopefully you are feeling better by nowww.
