One-Day Virus

A very bizarre thing happened to me yesterday ...I woke up at five in the morning to feed my little one, and felt a little sick. Went back to sleep and woke up at nine with a burning temperature, shakey legs, muscle ache, dizzyness and confustion, feeling sick and the most splitting headache. I've had migranes before but never with the other symptoms.

Called the GP out who luckly gave me the all clear for meningitis. After lots of Nurofen; I feel 100% better, with just a little sore throat and I feel like I've got a hangover (I don't drink anymore but can remeber the symptoms!)

What was that all about? How can I go from being so sick I couldn't get out of bed - to being vitually normal today? Has anyone else had something similar? GP said it was a virus but don't they normally last a week or so?

It was - I'm now worried about going back to work too soon incase my manager thinks it was "falsified" (we have a bit of a sickie problem in our office! Not me too often though!) I'm definately well enough to go back tomorrow, so I'll just have to see what happens. Thanks for your reply though.
