Aching upper body: Would check for strep throat, even if not symptomatic, or mycoplasma infection may also be TMJ or bruxism ( grinding teeth at night ), reflux check for h pylori as well, check ESR, CBC, CPK, ANA for autoimmune process, though less likely check EKG, troponin, check CXR and for lymph nodes / thyroid would follow up with doc ER today.
