See below: Symptoms and concerns like these mandate a thorough evaluation by your doctor. Only after such an evaluation, which may include labs and radiographic examinations, can he/she let you know what's going on and how best to help you.

Virus: Sounds like a viral infection. Have you seen your doctor recently for a more specific work up to evaluate the cause. And if you live in AZ, there are also infections called coccidioidmycosis and histoplasmosis.
