HI,

Thanks for your question.

Do you have nasal obstruction

Nasal discharge

Fluid trickling in throat

Is this the first time you are having such problem

Check you temp once more along with blood pressure.

Regards

No Obstruction--Just congestion from allergies (taking something)

No Nasal Discharge

No Fluids

Yes

How do I check blood pressure by self w/ out proper tools?? (i know how to do it if I have a cuff but I don't have medical supplies that I can use)

Thanks for your input.

It seems like you have got a upper respiratory tract viral infection. It can be controlled symptomatically by Antihistamine tablets & Ibuprofen tablets.

The thing to be concerned is your body temperature which is below the normal level. Normally it should be around 98.6 but 95 is very low. If you really have a correctly working thermometer then you should go to ER urgently because this temp level can seriously affect your health.

I am sending a link where you can view its effects.
