that would be symptoms of inflammation in the body and your immune system is trying to fight it..
you may or may not develop fever…
I guess things will show up in the next few hours whether you will have any other symptoms or not..
take analgesics only and only if necessary …
Let me know here if you developed any other symptom

it may be early signs of malaise and viral synovitis / arthritis. u can take rest, drink plenty of fluids and anti inflammatory tablets. gastritis may be a cause of headache, try taking antacids and local gels.
if symptoms do not improve, consult a nearby doctor and get the necessary blood investigations done.
