Hi,

The problem starting with slight headache and turning into severe sore throat, body ache and lots of mucus overnight indicates severe infection that is most probably a bacterial one. Consult your Doctor immediately to assess the problem clinically, get the throat swab and relevant tests of blood and get you started on prescription based antibiotic, anti-inflammatory with painkiller properties. Take Povidone Iodine gargles. Plenty of oral fluids to maintain hydration. Take complete bed rest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
