Why after high fever go away, lower legs hurt when walking?

My daughter just got over high fever from a viral infection, she complain her lower legs hurt when she walk feet flat on the ground. Now she can’t even walk normally for 2 days now. I am starting to worry waiting for morning to take her to the doctor.  I want to know if the pain will go away?

I'm sorry to hear this.  Is this better?  I wouldn't think that fevers would be related to foot pain.  Fevers actually serve a really important purpose. They make us feel uncomfortable but it is a response to our body trying to fight off something so we get well.  They typically are not dangerous even when high.  But . . .  since she had a fever, maybe she has some type of infection that is also causing the foot pain.  An abscessed sore?  A blood infection?  Not sure, obviously. So, I'm glad you took her to the doctor.  This is the mayo clinic's information on when to see a doctor for foot pain.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/foot-pain/basics/when-to-see-doctor/sym-20050792  

Tell us what the doctor said and I'd love to chat more about this.

You might be suffering from weakness. Wait for some days, if leg pain does not reduce or go away, consult your doctor. It might be a sign of some other under disease or disorder.
