This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
These symptoms are due to the inflammation of the muscles.
Viral infection trigger the inflammatory reaction in the body.
That can affect the muscles as well.
Reactive myositis will be the better term.
This can be treated with anti inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen.
The symptoms should subside within 2-3 weeks.
Otherwise, you should consult with a rheumatologist to rule out any autoimmune conditions like polymyalgia rheumatica.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
