Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. This complex of symptoms could result from a number of conditions. If you have burning with urination, have urgency or need to urinate often, this could represent pyleonephritis. You could have influenza or another viral infection. If you have urinary symptoms you need to seek medical care asap. If you have more generalized symptoms, rest, hydrate well and you can continue to use non-steroidal inflammatory medication to help keep your fever down. It is often the fever that causes musculoskeletal pain. As always, if you get worse, seek medical care.

Headache, : Headache, fever and chills is concerning for meningitis. If the headaches are severe, progress, or is associated with neck pain and stiffness i would recommend going to emergency room asap. If it isn't then you should get checked out by your doctor. Rarely these symptoms can be related to infection in the bones or disks of the back. Often they are related to virus. Good luck!

Source not symptoms: Need to try and determine the source of your headaches and other issues, rather than treating the symptoms with meds, etc. Should see a Dr.
