See Dr.: Difficult to deal with symptoms without searching for the cause. Need to see a Dr. to hopefully obtain some information on the source.

Wisdom teeth: At your age, emerging wisdom teeth can explain symptoms. Since it could be other things, best bet is to see an oral surgeon for evaluation/treatment recommendations.

Seasonal flu: is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve, Advil) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) are also recommended every 6 hours. If they continue for more than 10 days, you may have sinusitis and visit to your PCP is warranted.
