Could a viral infection cause bone pain (different from body aches), and shortness of breath?

Shortness of breath: Viral infections can cause joint and muscle aches but you seem to be describing something entirely different. Bone pain, into and of itself, is a separate entity. The shortness of breath could be a viral infection in the lungs but it sounds like you need to see a doctor asap.
