Without a fever it's unlikely to be influenza. But if it was influenza then it would likely be contagious only as long as you have the symptoms and then would stop being contagious.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
