I have gone through your history, you are having diabetes II for last 4 years, I presume blood sugar is well controlled.
With available information body ache and cough, most likely you have respiratory infection commonly due to virus.
1.     Do you have breathing difficulty?
2.     Do you have expectoration with cough if yes colour of sputum.
3.     Do you have asthma?
4.     Do you smoke?
5.     Why budecort is prescribed?
Your treatment is all right a cough expectorant may be added and if this is viral than it takes 5 to 7 days to improve, can take steam inhalation.
Tests like complete blood count, blood sugar level, creatinine and an X XXXXXXX chest.

In the meantime you can continue the treatment.
Please provide above information, I will be able to answer in detail.
