Fell ill on march 1st
Silverado44 posted:
Looking for some advice, I fell I'll about 3 am on 3/2/13. Woke up with 102 fever and as time progressed the body aches became almost unbearable. The joints that hurt the worst have been the joints in my spine, top to bottom. The worst of which has been from the L4 & L5 area (those two have DDD which I receive injections for about every six months). I have had shooting and burning pain radiating into my gluts, front and back of thigh, it's been excruciating n Tylenol does not touch it.

Fever seemed to break about noon on 3/5/13, of course three hours before. An appointment with a doctor. I explain everything to him but he does not run any tests, just a quick physical exam. He says I have influenza A, now what is strange to me is that I have no respiratory or sinus issues. Now the morning of the 6th (after finally getting some sleep) I wake up with severe chills, take my temp n it's back at 99.

I'm concerned that this may be something else, any input is appreciated
