Having temperature and headache with nausea. Had oral cancer before

I have had a flu like illness for 6 days. The first 3 days I had an elevated temperature, now normal and very bad headache. Yesterday I felt much better but today I have a painful chest and nausea . I feel hungry but food won t go down. I have a very bad taste in mouth and fatigue. I am 59 and had oral cancer 4 years ago and precautionary lymphectomy 2 years ago, but all clear at last clinic 1 month ago. I am on medication for a stomach ulcer. I don t have access to my family dr. at the moment as I am away from home. I feel generally miserable! Do I now need an antibiotic?

Thanks for query,
It seems that you got viral fever as it subsided by itself.
If your problem of bad taste and nausea continued then go for blood testing to rule out viral or infection.
Take plenty of liquids,light diet and full rest.
Ok and bye.
