Hey all -
Never had this before... three days again I was experiencing moderate back pain which I attributed to a new chair at work. Two days ago I was having increased all over pain, which I attributed to walking a great deal in my shoes with bad arch support. That night I came home with chills and a fever of 101.5. Fever appeared to break in the middle of night (at least based on how much I was sweating).
Yesterday I woke up with moderate muscle pain in most major muscles except my neck and shoulders. Pain and slight fever was present all day. Today, my body feels like I've run a marathon, once with my legs and once on my arms. It is difficult for me to grip a pen or turn a doorknob because of the fatigue in my forearms. Flexing and unflexing my fingers causes my forearms to burn. It is difficult for me to get up and down from a sitting position because of the fatigue in my legs and calves. Advil helps a bit and I haven't had a fever in over a day. No other symptoms, except poor appetite.
Do I just have a bug that settled in my muscles and nowhere else? Anything other than a heating pad for the discomfort?
I'm a 37 y/o male with normal health. I did just get back from Puerto Vallarta and had two very itchy bug bites that lingered after I got back. My muscle pain started 16 days after I got back, so I can't see it being related.
Any insight would be great... I have to go rest my hands now! :-(
