Possibly.: Your change in schedule, especially if combined with much less sleep and stress from school, could explain your headaches. If you are having fever, lack of energy and loss of appetite along with the body aches, then you may have new-onset infection or other cause. If the symptoms don't improve in 2-3 days, then see your medical provider. Hope that helps.

Could: Be due to new sleep cycle. Give it some time. If things don't change call your doctor for a full work up
