Take treatment as advised
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
The pain in calf may be due to myalgia post infection.
You can suggest him to take duloxetine(20 mg) with multivitamins and calcium.
If back pain persists, then imaging of lumbar spine should be done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
