Brief Answer:
What is your temperature? What did you do in XXXXXXX State?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this rather sudden onset of fatigue and loss of appetite. I am not sure if your chills are synonymous to fever or not. While legionnaires os possible after living in a hotel and using air-conditioning, the absence of respiratory symptoms of cough and difficult breathing make this less likely

If this has not been ongoing for long, I would have recommended a rather gradual and gentle approach. This is even more important as initial findings have all been normal. There are times in live we simply get low and have transient unexplained symptoms that should not make us panic. Unless they persist or get worse, we can often adopt a careful watch approach to address it.
