It seems from the history that you are having fever, headache, cold with achy body.
All these symptoms indicate bacterial or viral infection. This requires treatment by the use of antibiotics, analgesics and decongestant drugs.
Body ache is called ad myalgia and is seen in viral infections.
Since you not taken antibiotics prescribed by your doctor, I advice you to start treatment and consult your doctor for further treatment.

Thank you
