Thanks for your query.
It seems you are having a viral fever (fever,bodyache,tiredness)
Is there any painful swallowing ?
Is the area below right ear & above rt jaw hurts on pressing & a bit swollen.
Mumps (viral infection of parotid glands & other salivary glands) is quite possible.
Please see your GP for clarity.
In the mean time take panadol or brufen for bodyache & drink plenty of liquids.
