You have given an excellent description of your son's problem as well as of your concerns. I too am concerned that he has such clear muscle related symptoms and in particular it is important to be sure that he did not have any cardiac involvement especially a condition called myocarditis which is often caused by a virus called coxsackie virus. He needs to be carefully examined and diagnosed by your paediatrician and special muscle and heart related tests must be sent off before one can be sure that he is safely over his recent illness.Please let me know what the results are once he has again been seen by the paediatrician or if you have any further concerns.
