this is a way our body is trying to get rid of its virus

just keep change clothes and continually wipe the sweat off yourself when it gets really wet.

make sure to sleep on a towel and put a towel over your pillow, so you don't get it soaked.

drink tons of water

Go to the doctor, have blood and urine tests, including STD test.

try and put cold compresses around your lower legs.. and on your forehead..... do that several times during the day...but the fever is good it will kill the bad germs in your body... you seem to be having caught the flu...
cold compresses should help you feel better not so hot..don't get into icy water...that can cause you shock...and see a doctor asap..xx

i agree with "Drew"

Your body temperature is rising and you're body is trying to cool itself down by sweating. The sweating makes you feel cold so you start to shake.

I would go to the nearest walk in clinic for an evaluation. You need to find out whether this is the simple case of the flu or maybe a urinary Tract infection. The doctor will order some lab work including a urinalysis to help find out the cause of your fever.

This is what i know.

The flu usually begins abruptly, with a fever between 102 and 106°F. (An adult typically has a lower fever than a child.) Other common symptoms include a flushed face, body aches, chills, headache, nausea, and lack of energy. Some people have dizziness or vomiting. The fever usually lasts for a day or two, but can last 5 days.

Somewhere between day 2 and day 4 of the illness, the "whole body" symptoms begin to subside, and respiratory symptoms begin to increase. The flu virus can settle anywhere in the respiratory tract, producing symptoms of a cold, croup, sore throat, bronchiolitis, ear infection, or pneumonia.

The most prominent of the respiratory symptoms is usually a dry, hacking cough. Most people also develop a sore throat and headache. Nasal discharge (runny nose) and sneezing are common. These symptoms (except the cough) usually disappear within 4-7 days. Sometimes, the fever returns. Cough and tiredness usually last for weeks after the rest of the illness is over.

Influenza A usually arrives in the late winter or early spring. Influenza B can appear at any time of the year.

The most common way to catch the flu is by breathing in droplets from coughs or sneezes. Less often, it is spread when you touch a surface such as a faucet handle or phone that has the virus on it, and then touch your own mouth, nose, or eyes.

Symptoms appear 1-7 days later (usually within 2-3 days). Because the flu spreads through the air and is very contagious, it often strikes a community all at once. This creates a cluster of school and work absences. Many students become sick within 2 or 3 weeks of the flu's arrival in a school.

Tens of millions of people in the United States get the flu each year. Most get better within a week or two, but thousands become sick enough to be hospitalized. About 36,000 people die each year from complications of the flu.
