Illness in the US, but magically, no healthcare!

I just returned from West Africa and have a number of symptoms consistent with malaria - or the flu. I have no healthcare, through circumstances beyond my control (I'll elaborate) until May 1. When is it worth it to go to the doctor to get tested? How can I try to keep this from being a pre-existing condition, given that it may be the recurrent form? [more inside]

It's like my body doesn't want to go back.

I have been on sick leave for the past 10 days due to first the flu, and then some flu-related complications. I am due to go back on Monday and I'm panicking, literally. The thought of going back to work made me burst out crying earlier this morning. I strongly suspect this is less about the flu right now, and more about general unhappiness with my work situation, and anxiety, but I'm a total mess. How do I pull myself together when I only have 72 hours left? [more inside]

Pregnant Proximity Prognosis

The situation: Wife is 8 weeks or so weeks along in her pregnancy. I woke up this morning after 12 hours of sleep (about double normal) with a fever (103F) that has subsided down to low grade (101F). This question isn't about me however, I generally bounce back from occasional flu like stuff and this shouldn't be any different. (YANMYD, etc). Should I be avoiding physical contact with the wife until we sort out what this illness is? Should we change the bedsheets/etc so we don't expose her? This is both of our first passes at this whole baby making business so we don't want to screw it up, and that includes being overly paranoid and over the top reactionaries to normal every day stuff.

Online pharmacies a scam?

Are online pharmacies a total scam? I'd like some tamiflu, but don't want my doctor to think I'm a tinfoil-hatted drug-seeking nutso. [more inside]
