Take it easy, rest: Take it easy and have good and plenty of rest.
No solid diet for 2-3 days
lliquids like gato, apple juice, ice tea non caffeinated.
Rice and yogurt clear chicken soup etc
tylenol (acetaminophen) only for headache and pain. No Motrin or like medications
this should go away gradually and you should feel better with in 2 -3 days.
