Thanks for your query.

Reduced sensation in the right leg with headache and mild fever may be due to some spinal cord affection with some infection- mostly viral which is causing numbness of her leg.
If she can lift her leg normally on the verbal command it means that the motor function of teh nerve is intact.

A physical examination is needed to rule out many other neurological conditions

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
