Customer Question

If you have a head cold/virus, can that settle into other parts of your body. The joints/muscles in my leg seem to be affected by this, aching, etc.

Yes- a virus can affect other parts of your body including your joints and muscles. There is nothing that can cure a viral infection- there are only medications that can help to relieve the symptoms. Make sure you also drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest.
