High temperature / muscle fatigue / joint pain but no cough
Hello,

I have quite a high temperature.  It got to 102.75 today.  Also experiencing joint pain and muscle aches / malaise.  But have absolutely no respiratory symptoms.  No cough, no congestion, no sore throat, no sneezing or stuffy nose.  

Is it possible to have the flu and not have any respiratory symptoms?  I'm worried this may be something more serious.

Thanks for any replies.

Hello,
I've been suffering for five days with joint pain in a majority my joints: shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles, feet, I have no fever, cough, or any other flu symptoms, just a lot of pain. I had blood work done, for Lupus, Rhumatoid arthritis, and another arthritus, but all came back negative - thank God! However, no explanation of why I'm in such pain. It started with my right knee about two and a half months ago, and then last weekend my other knee, this past wednesday I developed a sore throat, strep test came back negative. I've been told I have "the flu", but what kind of flu? I've been researching the internet, but notta. I know what I don't have, but with all the pain and swelling of my joints...I want to know what I have.

I got the same symptoms five days ago lasting for three days.  My temperature fluctuated five times, with temperatures ranging from 97.4 to 102.6.  There was a period of body shaking for three hours before the last temperature rise.  I'm looking for the same answers.

I just had the same symptom yesterday. At around 7 pm I started feeling pain on my leg muscles, and my regular homewear was not warm enough for me, I had to put on extra layers, but still felt cold. I realized I was developing a fever. The fever climbed slowly but steadily, at around midnight I was well over 103. Yet I had no other symptoms, no throat pain, no running nose, no diarrhea, and had good appetite even though I forbid myself to eat. I just drank tons of fluid, made hot sage tea for myself, drank whenever I was able to, the fever broke after midnight, and I had the sweat of a lifetime. I am feeling better today. But still a little sore in some of my joints. Wonder what it is.
