Myalgias: Myalgias are commonly associated with various infections but they can also be related to recent unfamiliar strenuous activity. If you are otherwise feeling fine and you have not been exercising or doing anything strenuous then a trip to your doctor is warranted. In the meantime, Ibuprofen should help at least take the edge off the discomfort.
