Hello,
Sorry you don't feel well. When did your symptoms start?
Any other symptoms? Are you otherwise healthy? Do you take any prescription medicines, or herbs or supplements?
Thank you.

Thank you for the additional info.
You likely have a respiratory virus that will run its course in 7-10 days. You should drink lots of fluids and if possible stay home from work while you are coughing or have a bad sore throat.
If at any time your symptoms worsen, especially your headache and stiff neck, then you must seek immediate (911) medical attention.
You should always see your own doctor in-person if you are concerned.
