Body aches and chills are a common sign of the flu. If you also have a head ache, cough, or sore throat, it's likely you've caught the flu.

This can be caused by a number of things. Some of the more benign are general fevers and the flu, in which case the symptoms can be alleviated by taking advil or some other pain medication. However, aches and chills can indicate more serious illnesses, so if they persist, you should consult a physician for a diagnosis.

These symptoms in conjuction with one another can be sign of infection, alergic reaction, or intense workout. If these symptoms persist contact your primary care provider. You should document all medications in use and if your daily activities have changed recently.
