    Today I was diagnosed today by a doctor of having a virus. I fell ill late Tuesday morning, and have tried to rest and hydrate, but it seemed to be a battle. I would be sweating one minute and freezing the next; it felt like I had the flu. I did take some Naproxen for a couple of those days, trying to bring my fever down and help with the body aches. The doctor said my blood pressure was high. I've never had a high reading before, and wondered if it could be caused by the pain I am in.  The doctor gave me a shot for pain, but nothing else. Told me to return in the morning if I didn't feel any better.
