Common cold, chills, burning sensation, difficulty eating, headaches, weight loss

This started since Saturday, I felt like I had a common cold . But then on Wednesday I started to get the chills and constantly wake up in the middle of the night because I start to burn up and get chill, I also lost appetite and when I try to eat it hurts my throat and the food taste disgusting. I am not coughing much and constantly have headaches , I have lost 7 pounds since Sunday. not sure if this is good or not since I am a male 20 years of age, 5 9 . 170lbs. I have not eaten nothing today, I am only drinking a gatorade. Is this just a common cold/fever? I also had a few mosquitoes in my house if this helps.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
First of all a very warm welcome to HCM,
Just went through your problem and i picked it up immediately to answer it. Now please go through what i have to say with a little extra concentration. Your Weight loss is so so ....but I am more concerned about your "Headache" with associated fever & chill -
From the history you provided, i think that you should immediately -
(1) take an antibiotics coverage
(2) Oral gurgle based on "povidone iodine"
(Drugs not written as not allowed by HCM)
Also, do -
(a) Throat Swab culture and sensitivity
(b) PBS for MP
(c) R/E Blood
Mind it that any antibiotic coverage is based on sensitivity report.
So, immediate consultation with your local doctor is recommended.
Please maintain your nutrition and hydration, its very very important.
Wish, i could help you more but here from HCM, i sincerely wish you a very very early recovery.
Take care
