My 4 year old has been home sick most of this week with a fever, runny nose, and cough. His fever finally broke and he was able to go to daycare yesterday. Last night he started complaining about his legs hurting and when I asked him where, he pointed to the back of his legs at his calves just below the knee. So I brushed it off as sore muscles and put him to bed. He woke up this morning and said they hurt really bad and wouldn't even walk on them. We tried everything to get him to walk from games to even trying to "trick" him into walking, but he refused. After we all woke up and got dressed, he began to walk a little on them, but still favored them and wouldn't walk far before asking me to carry him. I took him to the doctor this morning and she said it sounded like viral myalgia (sp?). That sometimes after a virus, it can settle in their joints or muscles and cause them to ache. Has anyone ever heard of this?Answer Question
