Virus & Chest Pain

today i woke up having a very severe fatigue and feeling tired. I started feeling numb and dizzy and had to go to bed for couple of mins. After an hour or so i realized that im getting a fever and my eyes were getting heavy. So i checked my temperature and i had this low grade fever. I started having this weird feeling in my chest few hours after so i decided to go to a walkin clinic. After the doc checked me he said that my chest is clear and i have no infection and he said its a virus. The chest pain is getting worse like when i breath i feel this pain in my chest area that is getting worse every hour. Could a virus cause chest pain? The fever also comes & goes. But right now i just checked and its 37.1, im usually around 36.5-6. The doctor checked me but im still scared that its something more serious and im scared to sleep and wake up not being able to breath or something. I have no cold symptoms like runny nose, sore throat. I just have the fever, chest pain (breathing hurts) and some stomach pain.

Well, let me tell you this. In February 2013 I got a hacking cough which was so bad it was like I imagine a childs whooping cough to be. That lasted 8 weeks. After at the end of March, I thought I would dig the garden. Well, after 4 or 5 spades I got this horrible horrible ache in both arms, across my chest, down my back, over my shoulders. I had to sit down fearing the worst when it subsided again. I checked my pulse - normal, breathing normal. Reading on the internet that it could be angina (I'm 59 and my gran had it and so does my cousin) I said I would see the doctor if it returned. Well it woke me up at midnight one night and I felt so ill. My wife phoned the NHS line and they sent a paramedic who after hearing chest pain called an ambulance. I spent 6 hours in hospital connected to an ECG machine and blood tests. The doctor said that nothing could be found with my heart and that it was probably a virus and go home and take ibuprofen for anti-inflammation. Well it continued to be a mystery and a worry until I met up with a friend who tells me he has it and so does his wife. We both agree that its the worst illness all of us have had in our lives. The upside is it that there is safety in numbers - the downside is that his doctor says that plenty of others have it and that it takes 9 months to clear. I am not looking forward to having this horrible vomit inducing ache for another 5 months.
