Had high fever. Took paracetamol. Legs feel cold, body warm, muscle ache in thigh, neck. What is the problem?

I am a male aged 26 on the lean side. I have just recovered from fever (38degrees) which lasted 5days. I consumed paracetamol as little as i could. Now using a ear thermometer, the readings are 36-36.3degrees. My legs feel cold but my body is warm. I perspire from a 5-10minute walk. My appetite is perfectly fine and I have no spots/itch/rash over my body.
Just some muscle ache in my thigh and neck.
Any advice on what is wrong with my body?

There is nothing wrong with your body.It is the fever and dehydration may be causing this. Take plenty of fluids and fruit juices, glucose and pay more attention to protein diet that is, milk products, beans,legumes, green vegetables.the body ache is common in FLU like fevers and it will pass off soon

General & Family Physician Dr. Achuo Ascensius's  Response
thanks for using health care magic.

Thirty eight degree of temperature for an adult is not an
issue of much concern.
At 38 degrees celcius, many day to day activities or physio-
logical and environmental changes could account for that.

However, it is possible to have a viral infection that would
produce a slight elevation of body temperature associated
with muscle ache, weakness etc which are characteristic
of a viral infection. A temperature of 36 -37 is normal.

If recently, you did over worked yourself, the symptoms you
have presented with could be due to that.
You should take some pain killers and have good rest and
within a few days, all should be fine.

Best regards and if you have further query, i will be glad to

Dr Achuo
