Welcome to HCM.

Feeling of body pain and fever is indicative of viral fever. Urinary tract infection is associated with fever, chills and burning sensation while passing urine. Based on your history, I am suspecting viral fever in your case. Viral fevers usually require 7-15 days to subside and rest is the only cure. Healthy diet and adequate water intake is recommended.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
