In brief: Lung/heart/ribs
A viral illness can cause costochondritis (tenderness in the cartilage between the ribs).
Press the ribs and if tender try putting ice on spot. Some heart problems such as pericarditis (inflammation in the sac around the heart) can cause pain and fever. Blood clots in the lung (pulmonary embolus) can cause fever and chest pains. Suggest cardiac and pulmonary evaluation with cxray, ekg etc.
