Jason,

I am happy that there is no focal weakness {weakness at any of the limbs alone}. This would have worried me.

Fatigue and pain must be due to physical stress. I am sure you will feel better after a good sleep. I would prefer Ibuprofen over Aspirin.

Few signs should prompt immediate medical help - Weakness at either of the limbs alone/ loss of consciousness.

Wish you well.
