Heh, I can commiserate, you just described my entire household's symptoms circa February 2020. I didn't even eat for 3 days straight, just plain
wasn't interested. It's not that uncommon, regardless of the illness at hand, I've had "Appetite Death" many times over my lifetime. Went 4 days once
before my stomach got it's act together, lol. Damn, was I hungry as hell after that one.
To counteract that unintended fasting spell you got going on, have someone pick you up one of those big Gatorade powder cans, the kind that whips up
Use double the amount for the water volume you're making, it works wonders, believe it or not -- I also do this during heatwaves to avoid getting
heat-sick & the heat trots.
You'll stay hydrated, and have an easier time keeping the system balanced under the sickie stress, as opposed to it all sweating out, ending up
depleted and feeling worse for it.
Snooze it out, mind the temp, etc. Speaking of fever, when I'm sick (doesn't matter with what) I don't actually try to medicinally break a fever at
all, just reduce it a touch if it's getting too high. Unless it's over 102.5 for me, I don't break out the tylenol. Fevers actually do have a purpose,
it's part of the immune system's Kill The Invaders
Edit: Hit the button before I was done.
And last, I hope you're on the upswing from here out
