Looks like you have a throat infection- which causes pain while swallowing, fever, chills etc.
It may be viral or bacterial.
If you have infection in your sinuses too, you can have head ache.
Your tummy ache might be due to gastritis- which might be due to infection as such or ibuprofen you take.

My suggestion is, please have yourself seen by a doctor. Your doctor will examine your throat, sinuses, chest etc and will give you antibiotics if needed and other medications like antihistamines.

Do not self medicate.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish you a speedy recovery.

It is looking like throat infection. For fever you can continue tylenol and take oral fluids liberally if you are not able to eat solid food and consult your doctor for examination and regarding medication advise
Take care
