Illnesses that resemble flu?
SmasherStarting to get dizzyRegistered Userregular
For the past three days I've been getting sick. It started off with a sore throat the first two days, which disappeared yesterday to be replaced by a strong headache and some nausea. I suspected it was the flu, which was rather unfortunate timing since I have two midterms today. I've gotten an appointment for the makeup for one of them, but the other teacher is requiring me to get tested and get a doctor's note to that effect.
The problem is that today I'm feeling better. I know the flu typically lasts closer to a week and involves quite a bit of vomiting; I've felt close to it yesterday, but it never happened. I'm thus faced with a dilemma: take the midterm and hope I'm not it's not the flu and/or I'm not contagious (it's an 800 person class D:), or skip it and take the flu test and take the risk it's really something else I can't get a makeup midterm for, which would basically tank my grade in the class.
Now for my question: Do my symptoms sound like something other than the flu? I'm heading to the doctor's to get tested right after I post this, but I think the results won't get back until after the midterm starts.
