Not feeling quite right. *Mary Moon* 1 child; New York 3601 posts

So here are my symptoms, some more TMI than others.
Flank pain worse when I move or cough
Fever of 100.5
Chills
Constant ache/nausea to my stomach for the last 18 hours. Worse after eating
Pressure like I need to have a bowel movement, sometimes I do sometimes I don't but the pressure remains the same



I have the slightest bit of a head cold, sore throat. Nothing major. There is a cold going around.
It just seems like every part of my body is on strike. Maybe I'm reading too far into things but I have never felt this unwell all at once and it's bugging me.
:/ thanks for listening.

Already had the flu. Mended well. My son has the same cold. They tested him and his cousins and got negatives across the board. though i dont know what strain they tested for. Had a very violent stomach bug last week as well.
Do you think most of my symptoms could be after math of my stomach bug, or perhaps a different strain of flu (though my son got me sick, having gotten sick from his sleepover with his cousin. So I'm not sure if I could have a strain of flu and he test negative?)

5 days with a warning? Our schools in NY did a comment on report cards at the end of the grading period.
You could miss 5 days, you could miss 23 days; it would still say "so and so has been absent x amount of days, late x amount of days".
Boo on them. Let kids be sick without wasting paper.

Yeah. Good you didn't! I'm just glad I catch bugs from my son and not vice versa. This is his third cold in 13 months, still very mild colds. They caught his ear infection early on too, because he got sick a few days before his well visit. That was Sunday he got sick and Wednesday he is worlds better.
