Most people with SARS experience body aches, generalized weakness, and may complain of achy muscles that feel stiff and heavy. The symptoms may come and go and are most pronounced when the fever is high. The body aches could be severe enough to render the affected individual unable to get out of bed or carry out their normal activities. Along with achy muscles, most people with SARS feel weak and devoid of energy. The body aches and weakness are due to inflammation from the immune system's attempts to fight the infection. Bringing the fever down often reduces the severity of this symptom.
