    isn't that what you catch when you're actually at uni, because you're with loads of people from all over with germs you might not be immune to, plus lack of sleep etc lowering immune system?

    You've got fresher's flu. Sleep, paracetamol and water'll fix you up in no time. I have a mild case of it, basically just a sore throat which I usually get this time of year anyway, it seems half of Bournemouth sound really hoarse this week. Nobody I know's got it really bad though, unlucky you, OP.

    I got ill during Freshers but I just took a day or two just to chill and give my body a break from binge drinking, and now, I'm fine again.
    Rest now, take vitamins, lemsip, whatevers and you'll be fine
