Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, such symptoms can be due to any systemic infection but with chest pain and chills pneumonia needs to be ruled out but both chest X-ray and EKG should be performed to rule out cardiac causes. Echo cardiogram and blood cultures to rule infective endocarditis bat least. Other causes may be autoimmune like vasculitis but is less likely.

It's better to get yourself examined in detail by your primary physician and you may need to use antibiotics however meanwhile OTC analgesics like acetaminophen can help.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Regards
