Brief Answer:
Can be respiratory viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to respiratory viral infection. Take warm fluids like soups , tea with lemon and chewable vitamin C. Steam inhalation with inhalent capsules like karvol plus is good also. Antihistamines and nasal decongestants can be taken also.
If no improvement then do blood and urine routine examination to rule out secondary bacterial infections , allergy or low platelet counts.
Groin and back pain can be due to arthralgia and myalgia associated with viral ilness. If it is not improving then consult your GP to rule out any possibility of arthritis or back bone problems.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.
