Yesterday I got sick. I'm 28 weeks pregnant. It started yesterday morning with a sore throat and then my nose became stuffy and runny. Well later in the day I went shopping and after just 10 minutes started feeling dizzy, a little nauseous, got a bad head ache and my back and legs started hurting. Now I have all those plus my ears feel like there aching and loss of appetite...I havent eaten in 12 hours. I have joint aches in my wrists, elbows, ankles,and knees. My neck hurts. Dry mouth also. And my whole pelvic area is aching. Gonna call the dr tomorrow but have any of y'all had this? I've never had the flu, toxoplasma or whatever it's called, or mono. Thanks.

Did you get a flu shot?

You would get toxoplasma from changing kitty litter. Do you have a cat?

Go see the doctor. They can test for flu and mono. Not sure about toxoplasma, but if you stay away from cat poo you should be good.

Mono is awful! When I had it, there were huge puss pockets in the back of my throat. 

This just sounds like the flu, and usually mono doesn't progress that quickly (I don't think). Do you have cats?

Don't have any cats. I didn't get a flu shot. This all just hit me in one day.

Could be the flu then. Do you have fever?

I felt a little warm off and on but not enough to call it a fever even probably.
