COVID 19/flu: At the hospital, they may have ruled out influenza and COVID 19. Other causes may include an allergic reaction which resolved. If there was a new exposure to a new substance, food shortly before these symptoms, consider allergy testing. If this recurs a head CT may be indicated. Monitor your blood pressure and avoid stress.
