Brief Answer:
Acute febrile illness due to viral or bacterial

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

Presence of fever, body pains and generilised weakness- pointing towards either a Acute febrile illness due to viral or bacterial origin. For this you need to get done Blood tests and urine analysis to rule out any infection. Giving painkillers like ibuprofen gives temorary relief. So its better to evaluate under care of a Physician to sort out what might be causing this sudden illness.
