User avatar Hi,
Guess you are OK by now!

Your symptoms sound like the 'viral' prodromal symptoms of most common flu-like illnesses and many other viral illnesses.These may be followed by fever and a full fledged picture of a viral illness. A prodrome in the context of a viral illness usually indicates the period during which the initial viral replications occur.

Best wishes!
