Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute viral upper respiratory tract infection.
Presence of body ache, cough, fever and generalized weakness suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take proper bed rest.
You should take complete antibiotic course, decongestants, mucolytics and anti-inflammatory.
Avoid cold drinks and oily foods.
Perform gargles three times in day; a glass of lukewarm water along with a pinch of salt.
take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
