It could be nothing: for a 20 sears old healthy it could be nothing. if you play any sport,it could be a minor injury. if pain persisted you might need to see a doctor to make sure you are not experiencing the beginning of rheumatoid arthritis, you can take ibuprofen to see if that will make the pain go away. you might want to do some leg exercise specially to the quadriceps since it is the muscle that protect knee. ...Read more

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. A hot bath might feel good as well, and drink lots of water ...Read more

Vitamin/electrolytes: A lot of things may explain your symptoms, things like general fatigue poor nutrition and sleep with induced stress can alone explain what's going on with you. However other things like thyroid dysfunction electrolyte imbalances and vitamin deficiencies can also be checked for if your symptoms persist. Your physician can easily check for all of these by a simple blood test. ...Read more

Maybe muscle cramps: I sorry to hear about this. Regarding the fever, what do you call a fever? Doctor's classify fever as a temp over 101.3F or 38.5C. Do you have a temp this high every 2 months. Is there any redness around the skin of the calf? But this could be just muscle cramps. You could try eating more bananas for potassium which can help for cramps. Water also helps for cramps. ...Read more

Unlikely!: It is far more likely to be an infection, either viral or bacterial. It is also more likely to be an infusion rxn. You need to stop the drug, for at least for vtwo cycles and talk to your doc about your issues. They need to be looked at quickly. ...Read more
