In brief: Viral Infection

Mostly likely influenza or another viral infection.
We usually recommend seeing your physician if not improving within 7-10 days. In the meantime, rest, fluids, and fever control are the best treatments.

In brief: Likely the flu

Sounds like a viral process, most likely the flu.
Could also be mono. Need lots of rest and hydration. If lasts more than 10 days should see a doctor.
