I'm in quite a bit of pain and have already taken 1x nurofen

Resolved Question:

I'm in quite a bit of pain and have already taken 1x nurofen sustained relief for back pain and 1 x decongestant. Can I take paracetamol or cocodamol please? My temperature keeps spiking so I'm sweating but then my skin will have goose bumps on. I can't sleep as I can't get comfy or stay in one position. Also have sore throat and head ache
