Brief Answer:
Can be a viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in joints with chills can be due to a viral infection. You can start with acetaminophen every 6 hours and start having plenty of fluids orally. This should improve in next 2-3 days. In case the symptoms are persistent then do consult physician for proper evaluation.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
