Doubt related: I doubt it's related, especially if you have no fever, no abdominal pain,nausea,vomiting or jaundice. I'd guess it's some kind of viral infection you've got giving you the body aches and headache. Try over the counter pain relievers like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or Naproxen as well as a heating pad or heated blanket on your sore muscles.
