Cold?

I have an ear ache in both ears, stomach pains, a headache, & a sore throat that I've had since Sunday that is driving me nuts. :( I've not noticed a fever though I have been slightly nauseated.

Yes it does sound like a virus at this point. Drink lots of water and rest. If you get a very high fever take Tylenol as directed on the bottle. An anti-allergy medicine may help your ear ache if necessary.

Sore throat-boil cinnamon sticks with water till water changes color then pour in a cup and mix with honey that should help your throat ear aches can be tricky but can be happening because of your sore throat you basically have common sickness symptoms that can be taken care of easily

I can't take Tylenol or anything with Acetaminophen in it because it make me have really painful twitches. I can't take Ibuprofen either because I'm on naproxen for my wrist.

That is ok. No you shouldn't take Ibupropin if you are on Naproxin for your wrists. But it does sound like a cold rather than something else. Warm salt water gargle is really the best thing for a sore throat. It kills off some of the virus and it can soothe your throat .  If it gets a lot worse see your doctor. I think it will pass.

Now I have a fever. Though everything else was gone before I went to the doctor.

Maybe it is a secondary infection. How high is the fever and do you have any other symptoms?
