In brief: Virus

Viral upper respiratory infections usually start in the throat and chills and flu like body aches are common.
At this stage rest, fluids and tylenol (acetaminophen) are all that's needed. A head cold and mild cough may follow. These infections last 5 to 10 days. If symptoms worsen or last much longer, see your physician.
