Brief Answer:
Viral fever ?

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for following up..I have gone through the information provided..


1) Since when do you suffer from these complaints ?

2) Any joint pain ? Any skin rashes ? Any neck stiffness ?


You seem to have developed systemic viral infection(probably common cold virus related)..Should resolve in a week..

Symptomatic management would be enough for this..


I would suggest the following measures to improve symptoms.

1) Do gargling with lukewarm water/saline gargling four times a day..This gives soothing effect to the throat..Throat lozenges/strepsil can also help

2) OTC drugs like acetaminophen/naproxen if you are not allergic thrice a day,which can help relieve your body pain and fever.

3) A five day course of antacids (Pantop-D i.e combination of pantoprazole and domperidone) twice a day 30 minutes before food can help get relief from nausea..

4) Drink plenty of oral fluids i.e water,fresh fruit juice without ice(better homemade) etc


If symptoms not getting better (or) getting any other new symptoms over few days,you need to get evaluated to rule out other serious causes.


Regards
