I've been sick for about 1 1/2 weeks now. Never felt like this before in my life. I wake up everyday with a extremely sore neck. My entire body aches and hurts expecially my joints in my hands. I have no energy at all. When I wake up and try to get through the day after a little excursion I'm pooped. I'm a 32 old male. What is wrong with me?

The first place to start is with some blood work

I would get normal blood tests like a CBC, CMP, and thyroid.

I would also get some inflammatory tests like lupus/rheumatoid markers and inflammatory markers

It could be a lot of things

Blood work is the place to start
