Thanks for writing to us.
The leg pains after a viral infection are a common thing and they usually subside with minor pain killers like acetaminophen. For high red blood cells, blood donation will be of help. You also need to have methylcobalamin supplements for symptomatic relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
