I am so miserable right now. Back of head headache. Fever. Ears hurt and are clogged and ringing. No other symptoms.

Has anyone else had the same symptoms?

Isn't the flu a virus?

Lots of viruses going around right now including one that mimics the flu but tests negative for flu.

The flu is a virus. You should drop in on your doc or urgent care and have a test. If you are within the first 48 hours of the flu you can be given antivirals that may help.

Influenza is a virus. Did you mean a cold? Plenty of those are viral too.

Sounds like the beginning of sinusitis. A lukewarm compress on your neck can help alleviate the fever and possibly the headache in turn. A warm compress over your upper face might help loosen congestion and ease the ear pain.
