5 year old with fever and random pains

My 5year old daughter has complain about pains recently but I thought it was growing pains.  tonight she has a sudden low fever, pains in her head and eyes, side of chest, feet and hand sand is really tired. I am worried about her what to do.  I gaver Tylenol for fever and pain.  Could this be something serious.
Thanks,
MicLan

Hello, I had many of the same symptoms at age 5. My mother recognized the signs because RA runs in my family, and immediately took me to a rheumatologist (at that time, the early 1960s, there was only one in the entire state!).

Ask your family physician for a referral to a pediatric rheumatologist asap. I don't want to frighten you - the rheumie will run tests and may rule out RA - but if the tests are positive, the sooner she is treated the better.
