What's wrong with me?

Last weekend I was incredibly lethargic. I'll was fine Monday day except I'd strangely lost my appetite (which never happens!). Monday night I had an awful nights sleep. It took me ages to sleep and I felt headachey and slightly nauseous. I also had aching shoulders. I woke up at 3am in adrenched bed from sweating so much. Tuesday, Wednesday and Today I've felt so tired ,dizzy and headachey. For the last few days the glands in the left hand side of my jaw have felt tender. I have spent the last 3 days lying in the sofa and it has been so difficult getting the children up and to school in the morning. My throat is a little sore today too. I think I feel better than Tuesday but I'm still not well. Is it a type of cold-free flu like my husband suggests? I have an iunderactive thyroid but have never had any symptoms if it (it was picked up at a health check). I'm not used to having anything other than colds or upset stomachs and after 3 days it's still here. Wondering if I should see a doctor before the bank holiday weekend or is this quite common and I'll be over it soon? My appetite is miniscule which is completely not me. ( the one thing that gets me out of bed is the thought of the scales!) Anyone?

Hope you're feeling better! Pretty sure there is a virus (or viruses) like this going round - I had it for weeks, like a flu without any major respiratory stuff (until I ended up with laryngitis!). For most folk it seems to be taking a long time to clear. X
