Suggest treatment for body aches, chills and fever

I am a 66 y o female who had both pneumonia vaccinations this summer and the flu shot 4 weeks ago. I have had body aches,chills and low grade fever (around 100) for five days. Have been alternating Tylenol and Motrin to treat. Have had eye irritation but no redness or yellowing. Only other symptom is an intermittent cough that I only have had for 36 hours. Not an outdoor person and did not get a tick bite or noted rash. I am very sensitive to mosquito bites and do get more redness than most when bitten (last 3 weeks ago). I live in SE VA.

Hello,

As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My mother is 85 years old and began having a fender last night. Woke up crying and shaking had chills and body aches. Slept most of the day today although she felt much better. Exhausted from last night. Has begun having a low grade fervor tonight. Wondering if this sounds like the flu

My 33 year old son started chills, fever, generalized aches and pains yesterday afternoon, somewhat controlled with alternating between Advil and Tylenol. He felt better this afternoon, eating normal supper with his family. He repeated Tylenol 650 mg. around 6 p.m.. Over the last hour, he has developed noticeable swelling on the left side of his mouth ( lips to cheek). Tongue and throat seem normal. The only Benadryl that he had on hand was in pediatric form (liquid) so calculated dosage close to 50 mg.. How long will it take to work and what should he do?
