Question: Hi, I have a low grade fever, pain in the lower back and my knees. I also feel yuck. It is mid morning and I am also very tired although Despite waking up about 7 times I fell straight back to sleep. I feel generally yuck and I am having difficulty keeping my eyes open and focusing. I was getting a headache on and off and my neck is a bit sore but I can put my chin to my chest. What could this be? I did have a sore throat but it has cleared a bit.

Hello and thanks for posting the query
I have read your query with diligence. Your pain at back, knees or head seems to be related to fever you are getting. We need to find out the cause of the fever and get treated accordingly. Consult your General Physician and get your some required investigations done. Your doctor may order you test like Complete blood count, MP, Widal, Liver function test or urine examination depending upon the clinical examination and condition.
The other reason for knee and back pain may be obesity and it is good that you have lost about 40 kg weight. Keep it up.
Once the cause of fever is find out and you get treated you will get relief from your pains. If not than orthopedics consultation may be needed.
Meanwhile take Paracetamol or Ibuprofen to reduce fever and pain.
Hope this will help you. Write back for any follow up query.
Best Wishes and get well soon.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
