Flu with no fever???

You're not my doctor, but please help diagnose me! I have what seems like it might be influenza, without a fever-aching joints, extreme fatigue, chills, no running nose or other cold symptoms. It's Sunday, doc is closed, and I really would like to figure this out before Monday.

I work an hour away, in a fairly crucial job (managing folks doing public safety work)-so calling in sick on Christmas Eve is to be avoided if at all possible. My doctor is here where I live, not in the town an hour away where I work. I'm so exhausted and light headed that the idea of spending hours in urgent care makes me want to cry. Is it possible to have the flu without a fever? If not, any other thoughts of what I might have? I am trying to figure out how contagious I might be, so I can make a decision about work tomorrow.
