What causes backache and abnormal blinking in a toddler?

Hello, my 3 year old boy had a high fever last is over now, and has been for 3 days. However, he complains that his back hurts, and he is blinking strangely - almost forced. Today, he is still complaining. What could be going on? The blinking in particular has me concerned.

Hi, my back, close to the side started to hurt last Friday evening. Thought I tweaked it from carrying my 19 no old. It continued yesterday, Sunday. Dull pain, hurts more when I press the general area. Took ibuprofen last night. But when my toddler woke up at 3am, I felt stabbing pain. I have high cholesterol. Don t want to self diagnose. But thinking of going to er.
