Hi,

I am sorry I had to step out.

Well it looks like you got a viral infection possibly flu. If you are a healthy person, then you would come out without any problem. Most people recover from it with conservative measures at home and does not need special treatment. However, if you have any weak immunity or age above 65, you would be at risk of complication. In that case, you can visit your doctor for confirmation and anti-viral meds if flu.

Most people recover from it within a week, so you can expect similar.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
