Hello and thanks for submitting the question
Normally flu symptoms go in 3 to 5 days
The matter of concern is Diabetes.
If fever persists beyond today then you should consult your doctor and get the blood tests done to rule out bacterial infections.
Since you are hypertensive,you should avoid taking Aspirin for your headaches.
You can take paracetamol.
I hope to have answered you however if you have any additional concern,I am ready to discuss.
Thanks and good luck.
