Suggest treatment for fever, joint pain, weakness, headache and dizziness
To me it appears to be viral infection
Thanks for the query
With all these generalised symptoms and fever of high grade which is showing a falling trend in the absence of any localising symptoms like burning micturition,cough/cold,loose motion my first provisional diagnosis will be a viral infection.
Many of the viral illnesses don't have any specific symptoms during initial 48-72 hours and then they may cause flu like or other symptoms like rash or loose stools.
As she has been examined thoroughly and no abnormality was detected like liver/spleen enlargement,any joint swelling or signs of meningitis like neck rigidity, I won't get overly worried and this again goes in favor of viral infection.
Another suggestive feature of viral infection is falling trend of fever.In viral fever temperature shows a downhill course after 48-72 hours unlike in bacterial infection.
Chances of meningitis is very less likely as there is no retro orbital pain or vomiting and she has passed the clinical examination.
Even if you are anxious get a hemogram with serum C reactive protein and serum Procalcitonin level done as with the help of these we would be better able to differentiate between viral and bacterial infection.
Continue giving antipyratic with plenty of fluids.Be watchful for appearance of any new symptoms.
I shall be glad to answer if you have any more doubts.
Wish your child speedy recovery.
