Hi, welcome to HCM. You need complete check up to find out the underlying cause. Cough for more than three weeks can be due to pulmonary tuberculosis, it can be associated with loss of apetite and fatigue. You must visit a doctor to get your blood tests and chest x ray done. The loss of appetite is related to it but could also be due to gastritis which can be treated with antacids like pantoprazole taken twice daily on empty stomach. Wish you good health.

Dear your tiredness is due to anorexia as there is no proper digestion so vitals are not available to body leading to exhaustion. This results in lowering of bodily immunity and making it more succeptible to infections like sore throat. Keep bowel clean, have some exercise and light diet along with appetiser or liver tonic.
