I'm very sick and don't know exactly what it is. My symptoms are fever, chills, sometimes cold sweats, loss of appetite (haven't eaten much in 2 days), when I eat its hard to hold it down and I feel like I have to throw up. My stomach hurts and I'm hungry, but can't eat. My hands also feel clammy and I'm constantly cold. Can someone please help me figure this out? I'm thinking it could be a stomach virus, but I'm really not sure. Any help would be much appreciated! Smile

How long has this been going on? How often do you have to pee or poo? Do you have kidney pain?

Sounds like your body is trying to fight an infection whether it be a virus or bacterial in nature, unknown.

If it is bacterial then your doctor would prescribe antibiotics...virus just has to run its course.

Keep yourself hydrated and you may need to visit your doctor if no improvement or symptoms gets worse.

Have you recently had any sexual encounters? sorry to be asking but sounds like you might want to get things checked out by a few simple blood tests. Not trying to scare you or anything but better safe than not.

I appreciate you both taking the time to answer my post. Since writing last, I started noticing my symptoms going away las night. I've been able to eat, and since getting 9 hours of sleep my body feels a little bit better. I was told to still go to the Doctor, just to make sure.

And its fine to ask, yes I have engaged in sexual intercourse, what would you think has happened?
