This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Excessive coughing can cause muscle discomfort and cramps.
Also dehydration can add to the problem.
Fever even if mild can cause dehydration.
Then infection makes it more complicated.Viral
infection is more common, but given the onset of fever and extreme discomfort, bacterial pneumonia
should be suspected.
It is better to go to the ER for a clinical evaluation.
This is especially important since prescription codeine and tylenol are not touching her symptoms.
