More info needed: These symptoms are nonspecific and more information about them is needed in order to advise you. A viral infection is a likely possibility. At this time I recommend resting, drinking adequate fluids, avoiding roughage,spicey and greasy foods and taking Tylenol as needed. Diarrhea may ensue. See your MD if symptoms worsen or do not gradually improve.
