Could a viral infection cause bone pain (different from body aches), and shortness of breath?

No and yes.: Muscle pain (mylagia) is common, true bone pain less so. Viral infections are the most common causes of pleurisy or inflammation of the lining of the lungs, which causes sharp chest pain which is aggravated by deep breathing and coughing. Patients often notice shortness of breath, in part due to their shallow breathing to minimize chest pain. ...Read more

After DRESS syndrome felt due to a spinal orthopedic implant, the implant was removed but the patient developed body aches, electrical sensation.....?

Cobalt Chrome Allergy: This is a difficult situation as removal of the implants does not mean that all the cobalt has been removed. I am aware of two types of facet replacement and both utilize metal on metal technology that will result in metal and ionic debris that can still persist after the implants have been removed. Given the severity of your symptoms, small amounts of retained cobalt in scar tissue around the implants is likely the source of continued symptoms and there are no reliable methods to eradicate any remaining metal deposits.
