I've had some sort of summer flu bug: fever (up to 102.4), achiness, exhaustion, just feeling crummy since Sunday. The first day or two I pretty much just felt miserable and slept, but I've been feeling better. Today I feel fine, other than still being tired and weak. I'm dragging a bit, but I feel fine. But, both yesterday and today around 3 pm I have gotten that "fevery feeling" and when I checked, it's been about 100.5. But, I feel okay. I'm just wondering what the responsible thing is. I'm guessing I should follow the "at home until no fever for 24 hours" thing, but on the other hand, I'm going crazy!!!! How do YOU decide when an illness is resolved?
