Brief Answer:
Dolo tablet and saline nasal drops will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms look like you are having a viral infection causing body ache, headache and cold.

As you are already on anti-epileptics, it is safe to use Tab. Dolo 650 mg twice a day for one or two day for headache and thigh pain.
For blocked nose you can use saline nasal drops, 2 to 3 drops in each nostril every 4 to 6 hours or as and when required.

You can also try the following home remedies:

- Steam inhalation.

- Warm lemon juice with a teaspoon of honey.

- Eating fresh fruits and vegetable.

- Drinking plenty of fluids esp water.

In case your symptoms persist or worsens it is best to meet a physician for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.
