Any thoughts on son's muscle pain

My son, age 10, has had sharp muscle pain in one of his arms - just one muscle between his shoulder and elbow - for over 10 days now - keeping him up at night, and doctors cannot figure out the cause. It started the same time he got sick - mid-grade fever. He is now over being sick - and happily passed it on to the rest of us! Ibuprofin helps a little but not much, and it is always the worse at night and in the middle of the night. Any thoughts since our doctor doesn't seem to have any?

Is it his primary arm that he uses - - like if he's right handed, is it in that arm?

Is he doing any sports at school / home - like P.E. class??

What activities does he participate in during recess ??

Just trying to think of some ideas here.......
