dear sir
hi & welcome to healthcaremagic
i have gone through your history in detail .
your symptoms are generalised & appear to be secondary to the stress factor
my suggestions to you are

1. destress yourself with complete bed rest / sleep . you may also try some yoga / anxiolytic medications .

2. get your thyroid profile checked to rule out hypothyroidism

3. drink more water / fruits .

4. you may get your xray cervical spine if no relief
