Fever, puffy eyes and feeling very weak, with history of untreated hyperthyroidism warrant blood work.

You may go to an urgent care clinic or ER for the evaluation.

You may do following meanwhile;

1) Plenty of fluids; Gatorade, Pedialyte, Coconut water.

2) Motrin.

3) Vitamin C, probiotics and zinc supplement; raise the body immunity.

4) Rest.
