In brief: Flu? Other virus?

These symptoms are typical for influenza, especially if there is fever, but also for many other viruses -- maybe just a bad cold.
Pneumonia is possible. There's no way to know for sure without professional evaluation. Contact your doctor ASAP; treatment can be given to speed recovery from flu, or an antibiotic may be recommended if it's bronchitis or pneumonia. Good luck.
