Hi My daughter is 6 on thursday she woke up and was not feeling well, so I took her to drs and they tested her for the flu. The test came back negative. Dr said it was probally a virus that could last 3-4 days. She has no vomiting no diahrea. She has had a fever of 103.2 and i have been treating that with motrin then tylenol which seems to bring fever down to 101 i have even gotten it to 99.9. The question I have is she was not able to get out of bed this morning, i had to carry her to bathroom, she is saying her legs hurt really bad, bringing tears to her eyes. I am not sure what to do. This moring her temp is 99.9. I do plan on taking her back to drs tomorrow. Do you think i should take her to after hours or should I wait??  Thankyou for your help.

She is running a high fever and feeling horrible. I bet her whole body hurts. Personally, I would take her back to the doctor and make sure it's not an infection or mono.
