What causes dizziness along with headaches and appetite loss?

Hello. I have never felt so sick, i don t know what to do, but hospitals are definitely the last resort for me! I woke up on Christmas feeling under the weather and it has only gotten worse. My fever hasn t broke, my glands are extremely swollen, I have cold and hot sweats, my body, especially my legs, feel like they are in a vice. My head is spinning, I have a horrific headache, I m extremely dizzy, no appetite, I feel confused, extremely weak, although I m having a hard time sleeping. I m also losing track of time, and walking from my bed to the bathroom is an extreme challenge. I have never been so sick. I feel like if I had the flu at least some of my symptoms would ve broken by least my fever. I took Bactrim DS but had a bad reaction. I just got the zpack but I m having my doubts it is going to help. I have never had pneumonia, but all my symptoms seem to check out to just that. What do you think?? forget it. if I was able to get out of bed I would have just gone to my regular MD without cost. Shouldve been mentioned in the beginning of all this that a fee was involved. thank you for nothing

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have read carefully your history and I think that you should meet a doctor as soon as possible or should call emergency service to do a physical examination, should do a full blood count, a ultrasound of your glands, proteine C reactive, chest x-ray, in order to define better the reason. You should know that antibiotics must be prescribed by the doctor based on the diagnosis.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
