Weakness due to fever
My daughter aged 3 years had high fever for 12 days out of which 6 days was admitted to MD Pediatrician doctor. During fever she had mouth infection can called mouth ulcer. Due which she could not eat anything and weakness because that. Her platelets count was down upto 84000 now its 98000. Hb downs to 9. Now fever gone completely. But she found left leg uneasy or paining during walking. She can easily walk by lightly holding hand. She walks some steps individually also. Is this because of weakness or what? My doctor told this is due to weakness because legs reflexes are good. Just I need your second opinion. Thanks in advance.

Hi, Thanks for your query, after going through history, it may be a viral infection in which there is severe myalgia associated (means severe muscle weakness) , for which just a supportive treatment is required and it may take time of a week to resolve . Still few things can be more focused after going through blood investigations in detail.
Focus on feeding baby with high calorie diet so easy for baby to get free energy source.and can continue vitamine b12 supplement
If it still persist or if baby starts refusing feeds ,kindly consult immediately.
