It all started this time last week.

I had a light headache and a bit of a dry throat. Nothing drastic.

Eventually this deteriorated and by Wednesday I was not well at all. Thursday morning, at 4 a.m. I vomited (It was due to outside factors, either something I ate or caffeine in some tablets I took). I went back to bed around 4.30 but didn't sleep properly. Around 7 a.m. I wake up and have a shower. Then I get sick 5-6 more times. I still went to school and my condition improved.

From then on it has been better, with the headache non-existent. The dry throat still exists, but not as badly. However, a cough has come over me.

I don't want a cure to what I have, but rather would like to know what it was that I had, as it has been re-occurring since about November.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

WebMD gives you, from inputting your information (I left out the vomiting as you considered it unrelated), the possibilities:

Viral Pharyngitis
Common Cold
Bronchitis
Strep Throat
Acute Sinusitus
Tension headache
Laryngitis
Tonsilitis
Dust Exposure
Indoor Allergens
Nearsightedness (wtf)
Pneumonia
Heartburn/GERD
Chronic Sinusitus
Allergic Reaction
Migraine headache (Children)
Chemical Pneumonia
Cryptococcosis
Mononucleosis
Mumps.

If you put in the information yourself at webmd it would probably give you better results, although not as good as a doctor. I'm pretty sure we can rule out "tension headaches," "nearsightedness," "Migraine headache," because those only account for part of it, and if you are immunized mumps.

And btw everything you have except the vomiting accompanies various colds that I get at any time of year on a regular basis, so I'm betting it's "Cold" or a related issue. Yes, headaches can occasional result from it.

Pretty sure he's never gotten laid, and symptoms would manifest by ten or eleven or so if he was born with it if I remember right, so unless there was some freak accident with blood Nags...

What's your point? I'm sure he has sat on a toilet or shared a drink recently. Everyone knows you can get AIDs from the preceding.

You should see a doctor, but, that being said, let's go through the list

Viral Pharyngitis - It's recurring, so probably not viral

Common Cold - ditto

Bronchitis - Depends...are you coughing up phlegm? Is it concentrated in your chest?

Strep Throat - Possibly, are there are white spots on the back of your throat?

Acute Sinusitus - Possibly

Tension headache - doubtful

Laryngitis - This causes you to lose your voice completely; you'd know if you had it. No.

Tonsilitis - Good possibility

Dust Exposure - idk, have you been exposed to dust?

Indoor Allergens - In the winter? Not likely.

Nearsightedness (wtf) - Agreed, wtf?

Pneumonia - You would know it if you had pnumonia. Worst cough imaginable. No.

Heartburn/GERD - No.

Chronic Sinusitus - Possible.

Allergic Reaction - Over this long a time period?

Migraine headache (Children) - No.

Chemical Pneumonia - I don't know anything about this.

Cryptococcosis - See above.

Mononucleosis - Kissed anyone lately?

Mumps - I'm guessing you're vaccinated, so no.

I hope you're trolling Nags.

If you are, it's not very good.

If you aren't, epic fail

They're INDOOR allergens. They aren't from spring flowers or whatever.

And colds can recur all the time, because of the frequent mutations. That's why it's called the common cold.

Don't feed the troll.

Not very good? OK then. On a range of good to very good, how good was it?

On that stacked range it's below the chart. It's "meh."

I also used to get extremely warm in bed, to the point of damp hair and clothing, when in bed, but it's died down recently. Probably related to the headache.

That's probably the first fail I've seen from you R_R. Nags has to be trolling.

That mild drop in body temperature induces sleep. Generally, Heller says, "if you are in a cooler [rather than too-warm] room, it is easier for that to happen." But if the room becomes uncomfortably hot or cold, you are more likely to wake up, says Ralph Downey III, PhD, chief of sleep medicine at Loma Linda University and one of the specialists treating Roy.

He explains that the comfort level of your bedroom temperature also especially affects the quality of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, the stage in which you dream.
What's the Best Temperature for Sleeping?

Recommending a specific range is difficult, Downey and Heller say, because what is comfortable for one person isn't for another (explaining how Roy's wife slept blissfully in the chilly 60-degree room). While a typical recommendation is to keep the room between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit, Heller advises setting the temperature at a comfortable level, whatever that means to the sleeper.
