Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are suggestive of an infection. You are being treated for urinary tract infection, and if that is the case, you would feel better with the course of antibiotics.

Other possibilities include a viral fever, which can cause headache and body pains.

If you do not improve in a few days, a lumbar puncture should be done to exclude meningitis in view of headache and stiff neck.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
