Investigations required

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you have mentioned do look like viral fever. But for confirmation you need to get examined. Further you will have to do blood and urine investigations. Only after that it is possible to confirm whether you are having viral fever or not.

Hope this addresses your concern. Let me know if I can assist you further.
