Hello. I woke up feeling the "chills" at 4am. After bundling up and back to bed I woke up at 5am for work. Throughout the day I have been getting tired very easily and feel very achy. My neck feels stiff as well. Should I just try to rest or get in to a doctor right away?

I am female, 42yrs old 5,10 and 145lbs. I Have played competitive sports my whole life. I am fit, eat only whole foods and drink about 2liters of water a day. I am fair skinned and freckled with dark blonde hair and blue eyes. Three days ago I took a small nap under the sun (about 15mins) when I was in the high alps and woke up to a horrific stinging on my forehead, tremors, chills and nausea. I knew that it was probably due to sun exposure because I only put SPF30 on my face, not on my forehead because I had a hat on when I applied and then took it off to sleep. Today I woke up feeling great as usual BUT the right side of my forehead is really swollen, it looks almost elephant man-ish. I see there is a small eruption in the right hand corner and I have (which seems like) dried pus. I have washed it a few times and the crust washes away but then comes back after about an hour but I have not actually seen liquid pus. Underneath the skin, feels tender but does not in any way look like a giant blister. I have looked all over the web and have found nothing close to what I have. PLease help. Thank you.

Hello, I recently traveled up to Mammoth (elevation between 7900 - 8900 ft) for the Memorial Day Weekend. We arrived on Friday evening. I felt fine all day Saturday and Sunday. After going in to bed on Sunday night I was restless and had a hard time sleeping. I started shivering and had chills. I think I started to scare myself and started having some anxiety which was making me feel like I wasn t breathing right - though I know I wasn t really breathless, didn t have shortness of breath nor was my heart rate irregular. I ended up taking my temperature at it was just under 100 degrees (normal for me is in the 97-low 98 degrees). I could tell my temperature rose a bit more as I got really warm then sweaty. I felt very dehydrated and kept drinking a lot of fluids. I was somewhat dizzy and felt a slighly nauseated. I couldn t sleep for most of the night. I took some ibuprofin and finally dosed off around 4 in the morning. I woke up around 6/7 am and didn t feel any better. My fever had come back (still low grade) and then I had a headache and body aches. I did start having some chest tightness and aches in my chest area too - similar to when my asthma acts up. As the morning went on I felt a little bit better but still had a headache, body aches and low grade fever. We left the area around noon and went back home (which is close to sea level). I felt much better still had some of the symptoms. My fever rose to almost 101 during the night (last night) but dropped after taking ibuprofin this morning. I still have had a slight headache but it and the aches have improved. Temperature hasn t risen since the night again. Question - does this sound more like a flu or virus or could it have been altitude sickness? or something else? Some of the symptoms sound like it could have been but not sure since I did have a fever and it came on after 48 hrs of being at that elevation (we slept at the lower elevation).

Hello, I m a 27 year old male. I am active and eat right. I felt 100% last night before bed, but when I woke up during the middle of the night, I had a high fever and full body aches. Upon waking up in the morning, I felt slightly better and took advil, which allowed me to function until about Noon. The fever turned to chills and my skin was really sensitive. This lessened as the day progressed. I felt better after taking a nap, but the fever and aches still persist. I also have a great deal of difficulty eating food in this condition. I don t feel like I m going to vomit, but I do feel queasy, even when eating light foods. I can drink water without issue, to the point where my urine is clear. A brief search based on my symptoms pointed to a viral infection or a tick bite. I have not been close to tall grass or wooded areas in at least the last month. The viral symptoms don t exactly match up either. My throat is not sore, and my sinuses are not congested.
