Dear friend, in this case, unfortunately, you must go to the emergency room because your symptoms have been very intense and persistent.
In your case, an infectious viral process that has not improved, and has generated the persistence of a headache caused by dehydration, and loss of nutrients generated by this type of infection, also any a headache that does not improve after 3 days should be studied.
In your case, I suggest you drink plenty of fluids, eat well, and start with Tylenol every 8 hours in a continuous way but you should go to the emergency room as you should have a complete examination of your condition and request a blood test.
Once these studies have been performed, the following treatment may be suggested for headache and probable viral infection

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i have one more question , is there any way that a pinched nerve in c3 can cause this kind of issue?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
just asking because i have a pinched nerve from years ago and sometimes i know that certain nerves can cause certain issues , for example the reason that my neck is hot ?

can cause the problem as long as you perform an activity that can trigger the pain e.g. lifting a weight, being in a bad position for long hours like being in front of your computer, or driving a vehicle and stress.
But it can also worsen symptoms of migraine headaches due to stress, and muscle aches from viral infections in the neck.
But by being a young person, it is not established as a single cause.

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.
