Thanks for your query.
Yes viral fever gives you bodyache and makes you weak.But with time you will recover.
Take vitamin tablets.Have plenty of fluids and healthy diet.
The lethargy and drowsiness may be due to sideeffect of any of the medicines you took , for example cetrizine.Or it might be due to weakness.It will go away with time.
But if fever persits you must go get a check up from your doctor, there might be other reasons for that .

Hope this helps.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
