That's what happened to me last time I had the flu.

Sounds to me like you need some vicodin flushed down with some Jack.

It's pretty hard to tell if it's the flu from just those symptoms. There are zillions of things that give you "flu-like symptoms". Ebola, for one (in its early stages). Or bird flu. You haven't been playing with live chickens recently, have you?

Jokes aside (yes, it's probably just the flu), get well soon!

i had this stomach virus recently, it was going around. Ugh... it felt like there was a percolator in my stomach and someone was doing batting practice on my head. I could barely leave the bathroom and barely ate for a week. It was horrible. WHatever weight i may have put on this winter... so much for that!

Fever coupled with a stiff and sore neck? If not influenza, maybe meningitis...ack.

Better call House...

It's probably a rare hair follicle disease, made worse by the position of Jupiter and the color of your shirt.

You might want to see someone to make sure it isn't something more serious - like possibly meningitis.
