My daughter had a low grade fever yesterday but today okay. She's achey all over and now she feels her chest is breaking and when she breathes in it stings.

Presence of mild fever may be early part of a viral infection… so is myalgia and body ache.
Discomfort in breathing with pain… warrants an x XXXXXXX to confirm or rule out pneumonia or pleurisy (inflammation of the coverings over the lungs)

Do write back with details… Maintain adequate hydration and urine output… should visit emergency. dept if breathing gets faster.
