Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The pain just below the centre of the rib cage could be due to acid reflux disease.
Take prilosec OTC for relief.
The generalized ache in joints and muscle could be a prodrome of a viral infection. Take tylenol for relief. Drink plenty of fluids.

I hope that answers your question.
