About 2 weeks ago I started having problems sleeping (I am usually a very good sleeper) On Wednesday 4 June I got a really bad headache that lasted until Sunday evening. This was definitely the worst headache Ive ever had and could barely go outside as the light made it worse. On Friday morning I had a fever and my neck and back started to ache. Spent the day in bed on Saturday with my neck and back pain gradually getting worse. Had 3 arnica oil baths over the weekend as well as a light massage from my mom but the pain just got worse and worse. I thought i might just have the flu and thought Id be better by Monday. On sunday evening I actually started feeling a bit better; my headache went away as well as my fever.
I woke up in the middle of the night on Sunday and found that I could not move without being in extreme agony. This pain is all over my body, I am not sure if it is my muscles or my tendons but my knees seem to be giving the brunt of the pain. Everything hurts..and this is definitely not your average body aches! I need help sitting down and getting up from sitting or lying down. I cant bend my knees as I wouldnt be able to get up again. I need help getting dressed..my fever was also back.

I went to the doctor on Monday morning but the blood tests have come back inconclusive..my dr is in surgery on Tuesdays so I cant get hold of him..am thinking of just checking myself into hospital or something because the pain is unbearable..
please..if anyone can help me i would really appreciate it. You have no idea what its like to know every move you make is going to give you excrutiating pain.
The only symptoms I have are: muscle/joint pain, headache (altho thats gone now), fever, no appetite, trouble sleeping, anxiety (altho that might be cos Im freaking out here) sorry this is so long but wanted to give as many details as possble..
