Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The above symptoms are commonly seen in low energy levels. Also in some hormonal conditions where the use of energy source is not adequate.But I could not be specific in my opinion with a short history as above.

Kindly do elaborate on your symptoms and give me a detailed description of your problem so that I could understand better and provide you a specific advice.

Hi again,

Thanks for the information.

With the above description I can be sure of you having a post viral illness problems.

The symptoms sore throat, hard to swallow, runny nose and aching all over for 6 days is typical of viral illness specially for one like common flu.The dizziness and the cold sweats you are having are due to immunological reactions to the dead viral particles in the blood.

This reaction is self limiting and will resolve on its own in 4 to 5 days and is not serious.Need not worry .What you need now is bed rest for 2 to 3 days.The recovery can be fastened by consuming anti-inflammatory medications like Tab Motrin 400mg twice daily after food for three days.Supplementing medication with good protein XXXXXXX food will suffice.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.
