Fever and Myalgia

Reese had his first fever for this year and it was bad. Fever was up and down since Saturday and lasted till yesterday afternoon before it was gone completely. Fever was very high with the highest being 39.5 Celsius. He behaved very well. Took his medication without a fuss.

This morning, when he woke up, he complained of pain on one of his calf. Then an hour later it was both the calves. We got worried. It was so painful that he can't even stand let alone walk. Poor baby. We took him to the pediatrician and she did a thorough check on him. He was diagnosed with a condition call Myalgia (Muscle pain due to viral fever). So there is basically nothing much we can do except to give him some paracetamol and wait for the muscle to heal on its own. *sigh*
