How old is your son?

Has he recieved his immunization as per scedule? What about oral polio drops?

Is he having any backache?

Is he vomiting?

Any other problem?

my son is 7 years old ,im not sure if he has had polio drops but i keep him to date on immunizations,he was having back pain , he was vomiting the last time was friday after noon, please dont tell me he could have polio,
Expert:  RAJESH CHAUHAN replied 8 years ago.
No, I don't think he will have polio, as you have been to date on immunizations.

This is just myalgia which he has (post febrile weakness & myalgia), after having suffered from flu. It will go away in a day or two. Maybe give him Tynelol for the pain.

Best wishes.

You're welcome. Don't worry, your son will be seen running around in a day or two. Give him some soups as well.
