Back pains + fever

    I've always been aware that I have back muscles (they tend to let me know) but sometimes it gets really bad right before I get sick (I believe it's a fever: light-headed, body temperature never right (too hot or too cold).

    Is there any obvious relationship between back pains and fevers, especially concerning a back that's already injured? Several people get the crud this time of year, but I'm the only one I know having severe back problems as well.

    addendum:

    apologies, I meant for this to go on medical sciences.

    There's a thread started by Ivan on this topic...started sometime in January IIRC (I don't have the time right now to go find it to link again...I think it's in the med sciences forum, but maybe this one). This seems to be a common question this year. I'm going to lock this one...the other thread can be continued (I will try to remember to move this post into that one later when I have time to look for it).
