In brief: Body aches

Sounds like a viral process.
I like to use Airborn or Emergen-C two or three times daily. You can try increasing vitmin C, B-multivitiamin and Vitamin D3. If not improving get checked.

In brief: Keep same

Sounds like viral infection - " Flu like symptom".
it usually takes 7 days and testament is exactly as you do - symptomatic relive - fluids, rest, vapor inhalation, saline nasal rinse , soup,... and all " your mom recipes " If congested. Ibuprofen or Tylenol for pain and headache. If you develop more severe symptom as fever or severe headache, cough and trouble to breath - see your MD.
