Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem

Well, such symptoms can be related with Viral flu.

Sometimes, diarrhea can also come with viral throat infection.

You need to take Tab Imodium(it is available as OTC) to reduce the frequency of bowel movements ,this can be taken maximum up to 4 times as per the requirement.

You should take Tylneol to get relief from body ache.

You should eat something containing salt, such as crisps or soup.
You should maintain good standards of hygiene .You can take Ready-mixed rehydration sachets (eg Dioralyte, Rehidrat). You should Keep yourself hydrated, and maintain fluid levels.

For throat infection, you can Gargle with hot, saline water - mix 2 teaspoonfuls of salt in 1 glass of hot water and gargle thrice daily.
You can go for Steam inhalation - Take a bowl of hot water, and put 2 tsf of salt in it. You can also put menthol in it if you have some. Inhale the steam that rises from the water.
Drink a glass of warm lemon juice daily.
You can suck on hard sweets - the saliva trickling down the throat will be soothing.
