High fever, cold symptoms followed by calf pain. Cause?

Hello Doctor, My daughter developed high fever and cold symptooms on sat and the fever subsided yesterday only for her to start complaining of calf pain on her two legs. I m very worried as I don t know if it was flu she had and now the flu is attacking her muscles or if this is something that will go away on its own. She currently has no fever but she s congested and still coughing. Thanks.

Thanks for the posting your query.
Your daughter is most likely suffering from acute viral upper respiratory tract infection, which is also known as Flu.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for chest x ray, complete hemogram and ESR.
Myalgia (pain in legs) is a common symptoms of viral infection.
You should take cough suppressants, decongestants, throat soothing and antipyretics.
You should also take muscle relaxants also.
You should also perform gargles three times in a day.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
