I have read a number of threads of this kind thing after a virus - I think there was one earlier in the week. Usually it resolves itself without treatment - but worth checking with GP. I have never heard of it in real life.

I hope she is better soon.

We had swine flu in the first flush of it hitting the UK, swabbed, quarantined etc, ironically my cousin & her same age DD who love in another part of the country also had it at practically the same time we did - both of our DDs had problems with legs, my cousins DD collapsed & couldn't walk meaning her DM carried her round to their GP in a panic.

Basically this can be a symptom of swine flu, but don't panic it's now down graded & not as serious a threat as first thought, TBH for us, the worst part was the quarantine p, which thankfully they no longer do - hope your DD is better soon
