Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding sudden bodyache, fever with chills and rigor, body ache and sore throat.

According to your symptoms you are having acute respiratory tract infection with fever.But one should rule out malarial fever as well by blood smear examination. You are advice to take-

(a) Antibiotic- Preferably broad spectrum.

(b) Tab Paracetamol (500 mg).

(c) Decongestant.

(d) Warm saline gargling.

I hope this will help you.
