Brief Answer:
Stop Aspirin. Take tylenol 500mg every 6hours if fever!

Detailed Answer:

Your probably suffered a viral infection and still recovering. It is normal to feel weak this this convalescent stage.

I will suggest you stop Aspirin and go with Tylenol. I have reservations with aspirin in elderly patients. Drink much water, eats much fruits, vegetables and fluids. Also, get enough rest.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me on how well you are responding and recovering.
