Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hi there, this is just a quick question as I don't know the best step to take. Basically, I've got all the aches and pains that a fever/cold/flu has - I'm constantly boiling hot, however when I take the bedclothes off/clothes I start shaking violently and keep having quite severe chills.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   Did you check the temp
User :   I've also got quite a bad chest infection, but its only been going on for about two days now.
Doctor :   did you see a doctor?
Doctor :   What do you mean by chest infection
User :   A chesty cough
User :   I havne't seen a doctor yet, I thought it would be something that passed, but it hasn't so I think that will be the next step - however, it's like 05:00GMT here, so it's a bit hard contacting anyone. I can wait, I just wanted to see if anyone could shed some light onto it prior to visiting the doctors
Doctor :   YEs
Doctor :   I can do it
Doctor :   but i wish to know amore about you
Doctor :   before I start giving some home remedies
