I've had this about a week, sore muscles and joints, bit of a sore throat, neck and arm pits feel sore... my doctor did mono and lymes disease screen monday and both were negative... he said give it a week or two and see if its still bothering you. sounds like a cop out to me.

Thank you for the information,
Though you do not have cough or congestion, still it can be a viral infection.
The symptoms can vary.
Only aches, mild fever can be there.
You can take tylenol or motrin.
Please take plenty of fluid & rest.
If the fever gets high, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Viral fever gets over usually in a week but may prolong sometimes.

It is good Mono & Lymes tests have come negative.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
