Welcome to HCM.

Your symptoms are suggestive of flu like illness which is caused by virus called influenza. Viral fever is usually associated with weakness and myalgia and is usually self limiting. They subside within 7-15 days. You can take over the counter painkillers for the body ache and rest is a must. I suggest you sleep as much as possible and have a nutritious diet with adequate water.
Headache could be due to sinusitis. Steam inhalation would help relieve the headache.
