What is this sickness called? When I get tired and fatigue accumulates over time, I get sick. I have been stressed out a little bit and haven't been sleeping enough for a past week, so I'm sick as I'm posting this... I get a headache, my all body aches, especially lower back and pelvic area, but from head to toe. If it's severe, I would get a diarrhea or throw up. Even if it's warm, I get a chill and sometimes cold sweat. My face feels hot but in fact I don't have a fever. This lasts for about a day, and next day when I wake up I'm okay except I feel a little shaky. I've had this for about 6 times. I just don't know what this is called.

No fever, no coughing, no sore throat or any symptom that resembles cold or flu...(or is it a flu? I don't know)
I'm from Korea, and we have a word for that in Korean(몸살), but if I look it up on the dictionary, it says "be laid up with fatigue", or "ache all over one's body (from fatigue/cold)". I guess there isn't one word that refers to this sickness?
