My 7 year old was diagnosed with viral meningitis two weeks ago and is now dealing with some after effects of the virus. He tries to stand but screams and falls due to pain in his legs (muscles). He tries to push through the pain and sometimes is able to take a step or two before falling. There are also times while he is sitting or laying down that his muscles start to hurt immensely - and he is in unconsolable pain. These episodes last about an hour and a half. He is also sensitive to the touch on his stomach and legs - any amount of pressure causes him pain.
The doctors are not sure why it is this severe and why it is lasting this long with NO improvement (he has not been able to stand in 15 days). Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Any and all advice/info/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
