In brief: Maybe

Viruses can cause generalized soreness, muscle aches, and sometimes joint pains, but may not be the cause of your symptoms.

In brief: Chronic lumbar pain

The presence of lumbar back pain and referred hip pain is very common.
An appropriate diagnosis is necessary to determine the cause of those symptoms. There are studies linking the presence of pain and fibromyalgia to early chronic dna viral infections. Some types of dna virus (ebv, cmv, hsv, hzv, parvovirus, hhv6) replicate inside the ganglia along the spinal cord causing motor and sensory deficits.

In brief: Yes

But i see that you already have a herniated disc so my guess would be that you're simply feeling the pain more with the virus in your system releasing inflammatory compounds and worsening pain throughout your body.
