Hello,
Thanks for using HCM.

I can understand your concern.
You may be suffering from viral infection.All your symptoms indicate that.
Warm saline gargle , steam inhalation and plenty of oral fluids will help you.
Take tablet acetaminophen and cetirizine for symptomatic relief.
By blowing nose and keeping it pinched, with lips also tightly closed (valsalva) will reduce ear pressure.
If there is ear ache as well you can take ibuprofen SOS for the same.
