My 2 & 1/2 year old son has been very lethargic last night and today (slept from 7pm-745am, then from 9am-1030am, & is currently napping, h as been asleep for 2 hours so far. He woke up in the middle of the night last night with a 101.9 temp, so I gave him children s Tylenol . He has also been complaining of stomach and leg pain on and off since Wednesday night, but has had no signs of guarding an area or a sharp onset or anything. Should I take him to the doctor or am I overreacting?

hi there, the symptoms seem to be that of viral fever and during this time the body is very lethargic and there is sever aches and pain. So if he is getting up for his meals and is otherwise not complaining of anything else it would be good to continue the same treatment and let him sleep it off as it will help him to recover faster. Keep giving him plenty of fluids and regular soft diet. Take care.
