Cleaning sickness

Saturday morning, my roommates and I woke up early for a deep clean of the house. We cleaned from 8-11. I was on basement duty with three others. The other two tackled kitchen, stairs, and bathrooms. Between the stress of loud music upstairs, strong cleaners, and disorganization, I came down with a headache which later triggered a stomach ache. By 9pm, I felt as though I had a fever and was glad to have a bucket nearby. I went to sleep shortly thereafter. I'm feeling much better today, but am taking it slow.

What a weird illness. I've had headache, stomach ache, and fever symptoms after working or sitting outside in the sun, but I can't remember feeling this way after working around the house. I'm thankful that I didn't schedule anything else yesterday.
