Hello, I recently have started getting a mild fever (100.6) and body aches. I do not have any kind of congestion or mucus discharge. My only symptoms are body aches and mild fever. When I get out of bed, I start to shiver and when I am in bed I sweat a lot.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you. Your symptoms are pointing towards a viral infection as you have got bodyaches along with the fever which is classically seen in a viral fever.

However, my sincere suggestion is to consult a physician and get yourself examined and get tests like CBC with differential counts, peripheral smear for malarial parasite, urine analysis etc done to rule out any other infection.

Paracetamol should help in improving the fever and bodyaches. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
