In brief: Seasonal flu

It is very common viral infection.
Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. If there is no improvement or sore throat is severe or lasts longer than another week, or you are getting joint pain; see your pcp for evaluation.

If these symptoms have been present for less than 48 hrs, call your doctor for an anti-flu medication which will likely shorten and soften your illness.
