Hi, trying to figure out what we've got going on. Fever (ds age 3 as high as 104.7. Mine as high as 102, but I've been popping ibuprofen and tylenol for 3 days. Dd age 15 months, I'm not sure. She's on day one and I've been keeping her comfortable because I know how rough this thing is). Body aches. headache. i've got 3 days of very painful sore throat and counting. Feel like its doing something to my ears now? I look up viruses other than the flu and they all seem to be repiratory, but we don't seem to have any respiratory symptoms at all. Maybe a silly post, it anyone had this? Yes, I realize that there are many random viruses out there, but I don't know anyone dealing with this one. It is very tenacious, but I do think its viral because my throat hurts, but isn't coated and in 3 days hasn't gotten to actual strep throat pain level. Thoughts?

We recently had the flu and this is how it started, with fever, sore throat etc. After a few days the respiratory stuff started and lasted a few weeks for some of us.

Influenza can start that way. I've heard a lot of people starting with throat this year. My son started with a headache last year. It took a while for his cough to kick in.

Thanks for your responses...maybe that's what we've got. That would be great, actually, considering we're already working our way through it...
