Thanks for contacting us. We are sorry that you are feeling unwell and agree that you should see a physician. Yes, it is possible to get chicken pox more than once, and it is also possible that one of the illnesses was due to another germ masquerading as chicken pox. And, chicken pox can indeed be very uncomfortable with high fevers; adolescents are usually sicker with chicken pox than are younger children. In addition, you are to be commended for your exercise program! We at Mayo Clinic hope you recover well.
