It seems like you are in a lot of stress and anxiety. Adding to it are the symptoms you are facing. Do not worry; you will be fine soon.

The lightheaded feeling is due to inadequate fluid intake. Please consume more water, at least 3 liters in a day. Be slow while you stand up and lie down. You can take simple antacids like TUMS for the gas problem.

Yes, I do get the point that you are having flu like symptoms now.

The treatment is symptomatic with adequate bed rest; plenty of fluids orally, drink warm water, keep yourself warm, and wash your hands frequently. Most importantly, get yourself out of the anxiety and get back to work in a good health.

I wish you quick recovery.

Take care.
