Medication and rest: Good afternoon Your symptoms suggest that you may have an upper respiratory tract infection/flu. These symptoms can be exacerbated by stress. It is recommended that you try over-the -counter medication to help your symptoms or consult your doctor if needed. I advise that you get bed rest, keep well hydrated, eat a healthy diet and avoid exercise.

Need to see a doctor: I would suggest you speak to your doctor, have your vital signs checked to rule out an acute infective process before you dismiss it as stress

Strep ?: This could be a simple self healing virus or strep that could evolve into rheumatic fever. The only way to decide is strep testing.
