Fever / Muscle Pain

Fever, or pyrexia as it is medically known, is a condition where one's body temperature rises due to the immune system's shift to combating a bacterial or viral infection in the body. With this condition come signals that show it is happening.

Symptoms
Change in body temperature - One's body temperature goes haywire during a fever. To others, you may be hot to the touch, but internally you will feel cold and chilly. It is best to stay warm with a blanket or extra layers of clothing during this condition.
Exhaustion - A feeling of tiredness is also present during pyrexia. This means that one should slow down or completely refrain from any and all physical activity, as the body is concentrated on eliminating the foreign invaders.
Loss of appetite - One may have a metallic taste or feel a bit of acidity coursing in the mouth. This symptom is totally normal during a fever, that's why it is best to opt for a soft diet (warm soup or porridge) during this time.
Muscle pain - This is also connected to pyrexia and fatigue. Joints and ligaments in the legs, feet, hands, arms, and back are stiff or sore. It is best to keep in mind that this is just another reminder to have no physical activity and have bed rest until one is fully recovered.
Headache - The headache that is most often associated with fever is the tension headache. It's the feeling of pressure closing in from your temples, or from behind your eyes. It can also feel like a strain from your neck muscles travelling all the way to your head. When the headache is severe, you can drink medicine for fever, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, to lessen the pain.

For dealing with the symptoms of fever and its symptoms such as muscle pain, we have medicine for fever and sore muscles in tablet and liquid form. The latter either comes in syrup for home use or ampules (for injections) when necessary in hospitals or therapy centers. We have brands like Mefanamic Acid, Paracetamol, and Tramadol to name a few.
