Hi, thank you for posting.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns.

Her symptoms shows that she is experiencing muscular aches, that are caused by a virus.
To determine the exact cause a physical examination of the knee is necessary.

In these cases the following test are necessary, too:
1. Rapid strep test to rule out acute rheumatic fever.
2. Complete blood count.
3. Fibrinogen test.
4. Anti-streptolysin O test.
5. Urine test.

Contact a rheumatologist.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
