I need reassurance that I am not dying!

I had my daughter Friday night and she was feeling sick at her stomach. She threw up once and then was better. I took her back to her mom Saturday at around 2:00. When I went to bed last night, I was fine. I woke up at 2:00 this morning, and I was fine. I stayed up for a while and then went back to bed at around 5:00. I woke up at around 11:00 this morning and I was shaky, nauseated, my lower back was hurting. At this time, I now have a fever of 100.8. I can't eat anything. I feel like I am dying.

Sounds very much like you have the same stomach bug your daughter had.  Your symptoms are consistent with a stomach virus, which of course is no reason for alarm.  You KNOW rationally that you're okay, but cannot convince yourself of that.  You're fine!!

My fever keeps fluctuating from around 99.2 to 101.0. I hurt all over. :(

I dread having to miss work tomorrow but I don't see any way to make it in this condition.

I literally slept (whatever sleep I could get) in the bathroom floor last night.

there are alot of flu viruses going around and especially if your body is hurting sounds like you have one of the flu viruses. The fever is another good sign. Your body is fighting an infection. You should feel better in a couple days, stay hydrated and rest as much as possible.
