Hi Lisa
I THINK he may be referring to Ebstein Barr virus or Coxachie virus that is quite common, most of us get infected one or other time in our lives - some people get Yuppy flu from it that could be a stress related condition, and that can cause sore muscles and tiredness. If she is so stressed she probably needs psycological treatment with medicine and psycotherapy.
