passing out like black out? or just being hyperbolic? If the former, you need to see a doc or something cause that ain't good.

Hope the chimney gets cleared soon!

lot's of people die of influenza,

if you've got extreme symptoms (and it sounds like you do) don't mess around with it... seek a medical opinion (not a STForum opinion).

x2...

Last time I pissed myself I had Dengue... If you're passing out then it's time to get supportive care. Super low blood pressure or an extreme temperature could cause it.

Probably too late for Tamiflu if you're 4 days in. But they can culture you and get a better handle on what you might have.

just a dizzy fainting spell with some spinning etc. I have had extreme before. this sucks but not extreme. I had 106f once. that was extreme. people in the er ran around really slowly trying not to show that they were very concerned.. I know what 104 feels like and that is extreme. I would guess that I am peaking at 102 and change??? bag of frozen rice on my head right now...

Solved the peeing problem by sitting down....

(looks like the CDC gets the chop in the President's budget... fortunately we still have it functioning)


What are the emergency warning signs of flu sickness?

In adults

Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
Sudden dizziness
Confusion

Severe or persistent vomiting
Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough

"dizzy spell from standing up too fast with fever and likely low blood pressure???"

If you actually passed out after getting up too fast, that's likely low blood pressure.

But I'd go somewhere cheap to just get your vitals taken(like BP and 02 sats), lungs listened to, and a flu swab. Chances are you've just got a nasty bug.

This winter sucks... lots of bad bugs out there.

I googled your location for free clinics and they are out there if you are low income or have no insurance. We went to them in the 70's
