Can you please mention your age and gender?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?
Please let me know.
Sounds most likely to be a viral infection.
Viral infections can take up to two weeks to fully recover.
Meanwhile I would recommend using OTC medications like paracetamol or ibuprofen to help with your symptoms.
You can even use both these pills three to four times a day.
Your symptoms should improve in the next three to five days.

Yes you can even take paracetamol even if the thermometer does not show anything as it will help with the chills and will help with the warm feeling that you are having. Ibuprofen is preferably considering your symptoms as far as my experience is concerned.
