constant cold feeling . Electric blanket on , and 15 tog duvet . I just couldnt warm up.
Surely this was you running a temperature and you needed to keep yourself cool, despite what you think your body is telling you – you made things worse for yourself! Cycle paracetamol and ibuprofen which will help control your temperature and alleviate the aches: 2 para, 2hrs later 2 ibu, 2 hrs later on 2 para, etc but no more than 8 of each in 24 hours. Wear no more clothes than you’d normally wear if you were feeling fine, in fact less if you can get away with it!
I AM NOT A DOCTOR, but that’s what I’d do in your circumstances. I’d guess without sickness or the runs it can’t be food poisoning?Posted 5 years agosingletrackmindMember
Wed night dinner small currey , certain well cooked. At about 11pm started getting ill with constant cold feeling . Electric blanket on , and 15 tog duvet . I just couldnt warm up.
Got up to go to work 0500 and nearly fell in the bathroom, bit giddy so sat down for 5mins , deep breaths etc.
Managed to keep down toast and tea but felt nauseous , the feeling you get after a big night out including WKD + shots .
Got to work but felt vague , still on hangover feeling , no temperature regulation so cold all the time.
All joint ache , old injurys hurt as well. A deep breath causes pain in my kidneys , quite severe.
Went to sleep in my car for a couple of hours but felt worse so knocked it on the head and went home to bed .
Slept for 4 hours, Still feel like being sick ( body function normal in the bathroom ) . Taken Aspirin and water to keep hydrated , got a lovely headache and my back / kidneys really hurt .
RHR up by about 20 bpm
Relatively fit 42 year old who doesnt get ill very often .

It’s called cytokine release syndrome. That’s a sign that your adaptive immune system has found something worth fighting (probably a virus) and is getting stuck in. Paracetamol for temperature, fluids and maybe a day off resting.
If we didn’t have these symptoms we’d be in a lot worse state, evolutionarily speaking.
IF you’d been sick, you’d have completed the full set of symptoms! Google rigors if you are interested. Hope you feel better soon.Posted 5 years agouser-removedMember

almost certainly not food poisoning, takes at least 12 hours to come on in most cases
I’ve only had it once and it was exactly as above ^^^ but also included horrific bouts of shaking violently before vomiting. It came on about two hours after eating parially defrosted meat pie (I was young, skint and stupid!).Posted 5 years agomrh86Subscriber
Got exactly the same thing here today, apart from I was sick several times last night. The hospital ward i’m working on at the moment is closed due to norovirus, so i reckon i’ve got that. Starting to feel better now, so hopefully in the morning it will have cleared itself.Posted 5 years agokiwifizSubscriber
Sounds like viral illness + standard immune response as above.
Paracetamol for temperature, fluids and maybe a day off resting.
You’ll recover faster if you rest up for a day and give your immune system a chance to get on top of it. Obviously see your doc if not improving. Hope you bounce back soon!Posted 5 years ago
