Viral infection causes leg muscle ache?

Postby vlim » Thu Oct 14, 2010 11:22 pm

Hi may I know is there any kid out there after having flu, cough or fever, experience severe leg muscle aching such that they can hardly stand and walk? My dd is experiencing it now and I was pretty worried :? . Last time my ds also experience the same thing when he was down with flu...

My boy had an episode of muscle ache on the thigh once. But we could not pinppoint the reason why since he did not hv any flu symptons. Just out of a sudden cant walk properly. Went for an x-ray n took a course of medication. Cant remember what medicine it was, cant be antibotics right since it is viral?

Oh yes, my girl had fever for a few days and experienced muscle ache. I was worried initially too and apply some muscle relaxer gel on her. Hubby said it is quite common.

Yes .. it is quite common.
With Exam round the corner, just monitor closely for dengue symptoms.
