Don't know what I have but I'm getting Nervous.

Hi,

Today's late Monday night and i am growing extremely nervous / anxious. It started a week ago with a slight throat pain / bother. But last thursday night (4 nights ago), I had a horrible ache and eveything. Turned out the following day I had a full blown fever, hot cold chills, congestion, horrible miseralbe throat pain. From Friday to Sunday morning my fever fluctuated from 99 to 102.9.

The Sunday morning I felt fine (minus my throat). I went out but took it moderately easy. That night I guess i relapsed and my nose got congested and my fever was back. It was around 99.

This morning, I woke up with the same issues but NO body fatigue, just a headache, 99 fever, drier cough, and deep deep congestion (sounds like something is flapping in my nose and i can't get it out when I breathe deep). I went to the doctor's to check for Strep and it was a negative. I have had the flu shot this season and the doctor simply didn't know!

So for the past couple hours, I have had no body fatigue but from my neck up, my head has a headache, my nose is doing that flappy thing of congestion, my throat hurts, tongue is dry / has bad taste. And I'm getting seriously nervous. I can't even sleep because everything I sleep get anxious and can't really breathe well. And if i breathe from my mouth I know my throat is never going to heal....

Words of advice?! Please! Thank you!!!  :/

I had the shot in Sept of 2011 for the 2011 - 12 season. Not sure exactly which one but it was the generic one given out
