Severe body pain, sensitive skin. Symptoms of flu or pneumonia?

Hello I just recently began to have severe body aches with extremely sensitive skin as well. I am just wondering is this the flu or possibly something else? I have had the flu before, of course, but I do not remember my body hurting this bad at all or hurting to the point of my skin actually hurting. Please give me a clue as to what this may be. Also my 14 month old daughter is just now getting over pneumonia . I have never had it myself so I was also wondering if it might possibly be pneumonia. Thank u

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If there is cough with rapid breathing then one should consider pneumonia. It is usually associated with fever. Since you do not have any of those problem you can forget pneumonia. Post viral infections are associated with malaise and body pains some times.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
