I have chills and slight nausea. What medicine should I take- Aleve for the bad fever or Benadryl for the allergy?

Quite possibly: The reaction you describe certainly sounds like an allergic reaction to something you ingested , possibly the aleve. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) are fairly allergenic, and you develop an allergy to something at any point. So if the timeline to your symptoms fits with aleve ingestion, i would be highly suspicious. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for acute relief of current symptoms. ...Read more
