Brief Answer:
Have you had any flu symptoms?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this pain and fever. Seems to by myalgia from viral infections. This is not uncommon after viral infections of the upper respiratory tract. If you have had any flu symptoms, then that is the most likely explanation of your symptoms. For now, take Ibuprofen and tylenol to address any pains and fever and observe. If this persists, then we may need to do some more testing and examination to gather more details and act accordingly.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
