      Chances are you fell into a lava pit and posted this just before you blew up. You served your purpose. NOW DIE IN HONOR

    Emeregency medical advice was the only kind I hadn't seen on Blind. Go see a doctor. You are in the lucky few in this country who can afford it.

    100 is nothing. If so worried, go see a doctor.

    From TC, office gossip to relationship advice to... medical advice? What next for blind?

    This is sounding like the flu. Go straight to a doctor and see if they can prescribe Tamiflu, it's most effective during early onset and can drastically reduce the amount of time you're sick. In the meantime stay in bed and keep hydrated. Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast (BRAT diet) is what my family usually eats when we're sick. Feel better OP.

    See a doctor immediately. And don’t spend whatever energy you got on blind.

    A fever is no fever untill 100 F. You are out of danger . If it crosses 102 apply a wet cloth (iced cool )

      If it crosses 103, wear wet clothes.
      If it crosses 104, do an Irish jig while wearing wet clothes.
      If it crosses 105, join wipro cos brain damage has set in.

      Dude, if it crosses 102, see an effing doc.

    I had the same about a month ago. Terrible sore throat and a 102 degrees fever.

    I went to a doctor and got an anti-inflammatory shot for immediate relief plus a 10-day round of antibiotics.

    Go see a doctor.
