Feeling sick

Feeling Hot and cold often, really bad headaches that come and go, stuffy nose, earache on the left ear that would hurt, very sleepy even though I slept all night and all day, stomach ache, my throat was sore a couple days ago but with no cough.

Viral infection

Started off just pain all over, couldn't sleep well at all felt nauseous. The next day my throat was killing and was all swollen, couldn't eat and it hurt it swallow. Went to doctor and diagnosed with a viral infection, just to have painkillers and get lots of rest. Just felt bad all over and it took a huge amount of energy just to get out of bed.
