Hi !

Thank you for your query.

I think you are having FLU thats a viral infection . In this condition you can have weight loss , fatigue, tiredness with sweating etc. Well your treatment will be symptomatic only . You can take paracetamol for bodyaches and fever , a decogestant for coryzaand and add a multivitamin to the treatment . keep yourself hydrated.

Generally it will subside on its own without treatment. but still if symptoms persist see a physician for that.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
