Low grade fever, malaise and body aches for a week
I've been experiencing some vague symptoms for a week now. Usually in the morning and early afternoon i'm fine then around 3pm, i start getting chills and low grade fever and body aches mainly around my upper back. I also get fatigue. I saw a doctor and he sent me for a West Nile virus test, i'm waiting for the results now. He didn't do any other specific tests. I don't know why it's lasting so long, typically when i get these vague illnesses, i get well within 2 days. What could it be?
Dear Soda, my husband has same symptoms since last Friday, August 31. He hasn't gone to doctor yet, but stayed home today and slept most of it. We were thinking possible West Nile also. Did you get test results yet? Marian
