I've just been posting about the illness DS and I have just been through (and DH is in the middle of it, though without the fever, oddly) in the last couple posts, and I don't want to rehash it, but bloodshot eyes, fever, and fatigue are definitely a part of what we've been through.
Not just fatigue but also a total lack of appetite, getting full quickly with food, and even stomach pain after eating.
I had the extreme fun of sharp stabbing pains all over my body, and whlie I don't know if DS experiened exactly that, he sure did seem to have pains while in his fever stage (we each had 5 days of lowish level fever). Now we have lingering coughs.
We didn't go see anyone, it never got that bad (it got a bit scary with DS but not THAT scary), and here we are in the same recovering boat as those that did go and got antibiotics (without ever being cultured, sigh).
