I was sitting at the computer all was fine and then suddenly I got really cold and started shaking. It was uncontrolable. My body started aching and I could feel I was burning up. I could not remember at the time where the themometer was but was sure I had a fever. I felt so tired and my head started throbbing. I finally decided I need to get myself up and get in the tub to try to break the fever. It was hard to even make it to the bathroom. I kept telling myself I could not fall asleep in the tub I needed to stay awake. I stopped shaking when I was in the tub and decided I was ok so I wrapped up in sweats and crawled into bed. I did drift off and have some of the oddest dreams. I woke up just enough when the girls got home. I took my temp then and it was 101 so I am sure before it would have been about 103 just by the feel of heat from my body. I must of scared my girls cause they kept coming in to check on me. I slepted on and off for 12 hours. I am still a bit weak and my temp is down to 99.8 so I must be on the mends but I am telling you that scared the heck out of me. Just out of the blue with no warning.

Hello Tricia. I think you should go to the doctor. Have you..? I am not trying to alarm you, but one of my aunt had this kind of "symptoms" before she had gotten stroke. I strongly advice you to go for a check-up, please my friend and just make sure that nothing is wrong with you. We are not hoping for any bad signs, but hopefully (touch wood) if anything is wrong with you, you can start to be on the cure early. Rest well and go to the doctor, please..

You are both sweet. I think it was the cheese I ate yesterday that was out of date. If it doesn't get better I will go in but after listening to others about expiration dates and such it looks like I was an idiot for eating bad cheese*L* I am trying to stay hydrated today so if I can I think I will be fine.

Tricia, I'll be very, very glad if it's just a case of bad-cheese, -grins-..for it shows that you are just one healthy person just taking some bad food. Then there's nothing really serious and let's sigh a relief there, LOL. However, if you want to play safe, you can go to the doctor like oreo said. ^high-five@oreo^

Good to hear that you are feeling better today. I hope the nap makes you good as new. If you aren't 100%, I'd give the doctor a call. It's better to be safe when it comes to your health.
