Hi Kelly, like hippi and stacie said, you just feel much worse. sometimes it creeps up on you, especially if you are sedentary like me and you can find yourself really sick and not remember getting there. My face is the real indicator for me, red, red and chipmunk cheeks and puffy all around my face and neck, sometimes the red goes down into my chest. Usually something hurts, gi pain, urinary, back, joints, something hurts. I don't run fevers, my temp goes low because I also have endocrine problems. And the other main thing is just plain really bad fatigue. But most of the time for me it creeps up so gradually and never seems to go away, so that I really notice when my face is really red and I catch sight of it in the mirror and say, "oh my!".
