I think one giveaway in this question for Adenovirus versus Coxsackie virus is the shortness of breath when lying down (orthopnea). That can be a sign of dilated cardiomyopathy, which is most common after viral myocarditis with Coxsackie B infection (as per Sketchy).

drdoom  the general consensus appears to be that Coxsackie is more common than Adenovirus, but i haven’t come across any papers or textbooks that would agree (they only mention “Coxsackie” and “Adenovirus” as associations with myocarditis) +1  
bharatpillai  there specifically is a question on uworld in which a young woman gets viral myocarditis with sore throat and the answer to that is adenovirus. i think thats why many people (including me) got it wrong :( +
