Symptoms started on a Tuesday. Fever, chills, horrible cough and body aches. I went to the Dr. 2 days later as I could not get enough strength to leave the house.

Started feeling a bit tired on Thursday but thought it was due to work. Friday afternoon I had a 100 fever, still didn't think too much. By mid-night Friday the fever was up to 104. Stayed at 103 even after Ibuprofen on Saturday and Sunday. The lowest was Monday morning with a 102. Went to the doctor on Monday and took my first dose of Tamiflu. Within an hour of the dose I felt extreme nausea ... Show Full Comment
