Can mosquito bite cause muscle pain

In response.

On Page 1010 of the Merck Manual of Medical Information under the paragraph title “Other Arbovirus Infections” it says:  “Dengue fever is one of the most prevalent arbovirus infections that occurs worldwide in the tropics and subtropics.  The infection, transmitted by mosquitoes, results in fever, lymph node swelling, and bleeding.   It causes severe joint and muscle pains, and is sometimes called breakbone fever.  It can be fatal.  It occurs most often in children under age 10, and recurrent infections with variant types of viruses are common in subsequent years.”

This is the only reference that I have found that specifically mentions mosquito bite causing muscle pain.
