Fever and body ache

I've been having fever on and off since Tuesday and along with that there is body pain and coughing. Afraid it could be malaria, will be going to the clinic in the evening. Are the symptoms hinting towards malaria or something drastic?

Hello there we understand your fear and your feeling but you need to understand that fever is just a vague term. As your fever patterning is like that of malaria. But to.confirm that we need investigations that which support our clinical opinion. so just consult a local general physician and get investigation done and contact us for second opinion after staring the treatment. How ever fever itself is a risky factor no matter what it's reason is. Thank you
