Determine Cause: It's a hard question to answer. It is possible that one thing is causing all of yur pain or each pain is due to different causes. There are med. And street drugs that can cause body pain. There are a few infections that can. You may be able to treat the pains with tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen/naprosyn, but if the pains continue, you should be evaluated by your doc.

Muscles get sore: When you use your muscles heavily they can become sore. Some think it has to do with accumulation of chemicals like lactate that accumulate as the muscle metabolism gets more active. Or, the swelling that occurs as exercise leads to bigger muscles.

Not accurate: As you first wake up place a basal body thermometer underneath your tongue for approximately 3 minutes. A digital thermometer is easier and more convenient. Unfortunately basal body temperature taking is very confusing. Any type of movement or any type of activity prior to awakening in taking the temperature will falsely elevated the temperature. Also when the temperature has risen approximately .6 to 1° ovulation has already occurred.
