Should I Still Go to the Doctor?

I am going to be 12 weeks along tomorrow- the past three days I have had a fever that comes and goes, and feeling all over achy and exhausted. I called my doctor today and they told me to go to the local hospital to see the doc on call (my obgyn isn't in on Fridays). I took Tylenol for the fever this morning, and before it started working I was sweating profusely and shaking. The Tylenol has covered the fever for now, but should I still go in to see the doctor since the fever has gone down because of the Tylenol?

Might be a good idea. A fever usually means you either have an infection or you're sick and it wouldn't hurt to at least get checked out.
