Viral fever suspected

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr. XXXXXXX

Thanks for choosing health care magic.

I am suspecting viral fever in your case based on the symptoms mentioned in your query.

Viral fevers most commonly present with generalized weakness and body ache with mild fever.

Such fevers are usually self limiting and reduce within 5-7 days.

You can take over the counter painkillers for the headache and body ache.

Bed rest and fluid diet is recommended.

Water intake of at least 3-4 liters per day is advised.

If your symptoms do not reduce within the next three days, you need to get in touch with a GP nearby you to get examined in detail to rule out other causes.

I hope I have helped you with this answer.

Please get back if I can assist you further,

Thanks.
