Thank you for your question.
The most common cause of such symptoms would be a viral infection which usually goes away in a week or two at the most.
Meanwhile I would recommend using over-the-shelf ibuprofen 200 mg three to four times daily to help with your symptoms.
If your symptoms persist beyond one week or worsen then I would recommend that you be seen in the emergency during the holiday weekend or by your GP if possible.
