Doctor

A:   Hello
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.

It depends a lot on since when these symptoms are present. If these are present only since 5-7 days then it could very well be a upper respiratory infection and may require a course of antibiotics like amoxycilline or cefexime. If these are present since long then there could be a possibility of somatoform disorder and this will require use of TCAs like Amitriptyline etc.
Do meet your doctor.and get your history evaluated in detail.

Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health.
