For the last 6 days I have had a high fever (105.2 at peak, usually around 100-103), less of an appetite, and a headache (pain centered around eyes and at base of head in the back), and i have been very tired (not extremely so).

Recently I have developed other symptoms, yesterday I developed a rash (blotchy red on my torso and arms) when i stopped taking ibuprofen (600mg, doctor told me to, note that she does not have any ideas about what it is either), but now the rash is gone. Yesterday and today I also began feeling weakness in my legs and the same but to a lesser extent in my arms.
