Two weeks ago I came down with body aches, chills, fever, severe headache, weakness, and exhaustion.  I figured it was the flu, and it was over in 24 hrs. so I didn't think much of it.  Fast forward to last Saturday and I came down with the exact same thing.  It went away in about 48 hrs, but last night I got fever/chills again (came on at about 8pm and broke in the middle of the night) and tonight I have fever/chills and a slight headache.

 

Any ideas what's going on??  I've looked on WebMD, but of course everything there makes me think I'm dying and to go to the Dr. ASAP.  I trust you wise women to tell me if I *really* need to go to the Dr. or if this can be dealt with at home.

 

Thanks!

Could it be mastitis that is somehow resolving itself on its own?

Interesting idea! My breasts aren't super painful, but I do have sharp pains every now and then.  I admit, I don't know a lot about mastitis, does that fit?
