    I felt as though I had aged 5 years.
    It seemed as if I had aged 5 years.

    No, these aren't metaphors, since they are statements of fact.
    "I aged 5 years overnight!" This is metaphorical because it is not literal. You are asserting something to be true, which in reality is not.
    For a metaphor, it's not enough to say that A feels like B. It must read A is B.
