Brief Answer:
Taking acetaminophen when needed should help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern. Most often such symptoms are due to viral infections although stress and anxiety can be contributing factors. This does not necessarily mean that you need to be treated with Tamiflu. It is not justifiable to go for such medication without getting tested. Irrespective of treatment such viral infections resolve in 5-7 days. All you need to do is to take acetaminophenn (OTC). You can take meclizine (OTC) to help the nausea resolve.

Please be patient. It should resolve soon.
