Viral syndrome: It sounds like your symptoms are more than you can handle at home. You've tried taking over-the-counter therapies like Paracetamol? You should call your doc since you have dizziness and could be dehydrated. I recommend chicken soup, fluids, and REST until you can be seen. You need something for the chest too-like an inhaler (albuterol). Limit stress and sleep well to avoid these type of infections
