I have been feeling very unwell four days

Resolved Question:

Hi,
I have been feeling very unwell for about four days now. I woke up on Saturday with itchy blotch rash on my arms, and by lunch time I had no appetite. By the evening I had a splitting headache and painfully stiff shoulders so I almost couldn't turn my head. When I walked my chest would hurt with every step.
Next morning I had a further rash on my feet and lower legs, head ache still there and extreme fatigue. I kept on going from hot to cold a lot too and have been cold sweating a lot at night.
Now it's day four and I have red blotches on my throat and chest, my neck still hurts, and still very fatigued with painful limbs. But the head ache seems to have disappeared. Any suggestions for what is wrong with me??

It's hard to see, on the chest it's just muted blotches all over but on the legs it's more like a classic rash

I am back on microgynon for about two weeks but nothing aside from that.
