Brief Answer:
Possibly....

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for following up.

The symptoms your gentleman friend is having might indicate common viral infection although his blood work was fine.

If no viral infection, then, anxiety is another possibility.

Advise to give him:
- drink plenty of fluids (water, juice, soups) to keep well hydrated
- acetaminophen or ibuprofen for chills
- multivitamin supplements (containing vit.C and B) for his lack of energy


Hope it helped! Wish fast recovery!
