No it is not normal.

The most common reason is treatment with the class of antibiotics known as Quinolones, Levaquin being the primary culprit.

It depends on where the joint pain is.  Joint pain in the area of your ribs, chest or back might be normal if you are coughing a lot.  Some medications can cause joint pain as well.  Probably best to check in with your primary doc, they may want to check some blood work.
