3 year old with pain in the knees and elbows, fever. Anything to be worried?

My 3 year old son has been complaining of his knees hurting for at least a year now. At first we thought growing pains but just recently we brought him in for X-ray (which came back normal) but dr thinks his knees may be bumping during the day which causes pain at night. Now he has just started complaining of elbow pain as well as knee pain and tonight he is running 101.4 fever. I plan to take him to dr on Monday to rule out my worst fear. What do you think this could be?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
This pain is due to the fever I suppose.Viral fevers are usually associated with pain in the bones and muscles.
Give him paracetamol for the pain.
The pain in the knees if prolonged needs to be checked out. take an X ray and monitor his Vit D levels.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Do not worry we are there to help you out.
