Recurring stuffy, runny nose, weakness, drowsiness, headache. Remedy?

A week ago, I got sick (had a terribly runny nose , felt kind of weak, and got a fever once during the period of time it lasted). Today, I m sick again. It started this morning with a stuffy nose, which became stuffy, and then I started feeling weak. I went to sleep and when I woke up, I felt worse. I feel weak (my muscles ache-- which may be because I had an intense work out yesterday after about 2 weeks of barely any exercise), drowsy, im sneezing , have a runny nose, my head hurts... and on top of it all, I have a final assignment due on Monday. im 15. and female.

You are suffering from Recurrent Upper Respiratory Tract Infection which could be viral or bacterial which is causing fever, runny nose, sneezing and headache. You should take a course of antibiotics like Amoxycillin, antiallergic like Allegra, a pain killer for bodyache, fever and headache. Pamper yourself with hot soups, ginger tea and drink enough water. Take plenty of rest and adequate sleep. Vigorous physical exercise should be avoided when body is not upto it. However you can go for short walk when not running fever to get some fresh air.
