Stomach virus.: Infections like this in general can be accompanied by fevers and a general achy sensation which can affect all the muscles ("myalgias") and joints ("arthritis"). Should be short-lived, but if this sensation lasts more than one week or so, you should see your doctor about it. Anti-inflammatories may help.
