I had a sudden cough and felt very hot, sore throat, head ache, then got chills, aches and pains etc and got a chest infection too so was quite breathless have got antibiotics for that now. Hope it isn't that but if it is just monitor yourself carefully and be assertive about rest. I tried to soldier on and it just got worse if I hadnt picked up on chest infection could've been serious x

Sounds like a bug - most likely a head cold coming on. If you have no fever or cough and are able to go about your day to day life (albeit slowly and clutching your head saying 'oww') it's probably a generic bug.

Take some painkillers and rest. If your temperature suddenly shoots up and you can't get out of bed because you hurt all over, that's swine flu.

Which DOES NOT MEAN you have to ignore your symptoms, but you can probably safely wait till tomorrow to call your GP.

Feel better soon.

I've been feeling like this all since last night. Shaky and headache, aching and weak. But no sore throat or cough [yet] Odd.
