Cuerpo cortado

Whe say this in Mexico when you are about to catch a flu or getting a throat infection; you feel feverish chills and your bone joints ache.

How do you say this in Spanish in other regions and how do you say this in English?

In Spain my dad used to say, "No estoy muy católico".

I believe in English you can say "I am under the weather" (Estoy indispuesto, sentirse maluco, sentir malestar...) Not feeling myself...

Conozco la expresión 'cuerpo cortado' como sinónimo de 'resaca', el día después de una colosal borrachera.

Thank you so much, Rusty.

@Pablo: Me encanta. ¿Será porque uno no está en condiciones de ir a la iglesia?

En México, tener el cuerpo cortado se refiere específicamente a los síntomas de enfermedad que describí al principio; para la resaca, usamos "estar crudo" o "tener cruda".

@Angelica
No sé muy bien por qué, "no estoy católico" significa eso... (a lo mejor es como tú dices...)

DRAE da: católico 5. adj. coloq. Sano y perfecto. Hoy no está muy católico.
Y "católico" etimológicamente tiene el sentido de "universal"

@Chileno, en España se dice "pillarse una mona" o "pillarse una merluza", cuando uno se emborracha... Para la resaca... "resaca"...

Gracias, Hernán.
Gracias, Pablo, no conocía esa acepción de católico.

Eso de "no andar muy católico" también se usa en Chile.

Lo que no usamos es "cruda/crudo"

Correcto, resaca es resaca y es andar con la mona.
