Dear Patient ,
thank you for contacting the website for more insight about your problem , i suspect the virus you talk about causes an upper respiratory tract
infection for you and if so you developed cough
during the time you were sick !? if so it might be related to the virus in terms of causing a fatigue
to your accessory respiratory muscles like serratus muscle and costdiaphragmtic muslces which gives the feeling of pain similar to the muscle pain
you get when you over exercise . try taking NSAIDS for pain either ointment on the sight of pain or tablets and remember to eat before taking those tablets and make sure you dont have stomach problems like an ulcer before taking them .
best regards ,
