I have a burning throat and flu-like symptoms. Especially severe sweating and then chills. I started off with a burning throat that has gotten worse and now has lasted 5 days. Flu-like symptoms have started and I go from chills to sweating...
I know you have found answers to your question already, but I was wondering if you might want to share a diagnosis and effective treatment plan?
We are not doctors here, but it did sound as though you could have had a bad case of the flu (it can linger) or even strep throat. It is always a good idea to get to the doctor quickly if you think you have the flu--the earlier the treatment, the better!
I do hope you are well. Here are a few links that might interest you!
