Maura, I'm sorry we can't help you.  This is a breast cancer site, and we are not doctors--just breast cancer survivors who are well-read on that topic, but not necessarily other topics.


If this has lasted longer than the typical virus (seven to ten days), it's time to call the doctor.  And if you are running a high fever and/or can not keep any food down, you need to call the doctor even if you have had the symptoms only a day or two.  You don't want to run the risk of getting dehydrated.


If you are a breast cancer survivor, these symptoms are not typical of a recurrence.  I hope you feel better soon.
