Need to be seen: Your symptoms may be related to an infection or possibly an autoimmune process. There are several viral infections that can give you the symptoms you describe and lab work can confirm if this it the case. For the majority the only intervention is time and controlling symptoms such as fever and pain. You want to limit your exposure to others until you are seen by a medical provider.
