Brief Answer:
Most probably due to altered metabolic activity of the body

Detailed Answer:
Hello

thank you for the answers. I have gone through them. Your symptoms could be because of altered basal metabolic activity of the body. It may occur sometime due to a number of causes like inadequate sleep or stress. Following steps would help you in smooth recovery:

- Take lots of fluids( water, juices)
- Acetaminophen thrice a day for 2 days
- Take a nap for 2-3 hrs in afternoon.
- Go out for a walk in the evening for 30-45mins
- Avoid carbohydrates & fatty/oily food food. Skip dairy products for few days as well.


Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
