Child having wincing lower back pain, low grade fever, continuous leg pain. Cause?

My 4 year old son has been wincing in pain all day about his lower back...he feels like he has a low grade fever also. His OT therapist noticed it first this morning when they were in the gym and he has just not been his self...wants me to hold him when we went to the store...and has not been very active today...just in little spurts..what do you think this could be? He also has been complaining for months of leg pains...and was seen by a pediatric ortho...and he said right now everything looked okay but wanted to see him again if the ain continued..thanks for any help you can provide...

Hi Dear,
Thanks for the query,
Routine investigations like CBC, ESR, Mx Test, CRP CXRay. Xray spne AP& lateral View,or some higher imaging of the spine may be required to rule out any pathology of spine like potts spine,disc slip, buldge disc, or acute bacterial infection.Even simple acute muscle spasm may be the cause.
Hope i have given you some more guidance .
