Hot baths, stay under covers, and sleep as much as possible, while taking medicine. Drink Gatorade, or 7UP, and eat crackers.

i went to skool on monday and i was sweating and freezing all day, i could barely make it up the 5 flights of stairs without feeling like i was going to pass out.

i dont feel like passing out in a random hallway

Stay near a bathroom. Drink Sprite or 7up and eat saltines.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

play video games, they provide the utter control of all of your attention so you get distracted from the pain, and any hunger that may occur, i once played video games for two days straight, after i stopped i was fine for an hour then BAM! i was STARVING and so VERY VERY tired.

but hey, it'll destract you from the pain, i've even had it stopper off diahrrea

A toilet?

1) Aspirin. It cures anything except allergy to aspirin.

2) Walk it off.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I am not a big gamer either but I have to agree with doomed1.

Video games are horribly distracting and will definitely take your mind off the discomfort.

Doctors have even started to use virtual reality as a form of pain relief for burn victims.
(Here is the article if you are interested.)

Of course virtual reality is a little extreme compared to something like an xbox but it is the same idea.

try and sleep

if you can't sleep then watch tv, chicken noodle soup, and 7up(it makes your stomach feel better). have a trashcan near you and towels. just get under some blankets, get comfy, and if you feel like your gonna hurl, you can hurl in your lap. it can provide an extra layer of warmness and you can see what you ate for lunch.

EDIT: this works better when you had alphabet soup for lunch
