Systemic viral: Your symptoms have the features of a systemic viral illness. We tend to call this "the flu" though it may well be caused by another virus besides the influenza virus. So isolate yourself, wash your hands frequently, take plenty fluids while eating well, and get plenty rest. Hope that helps.
