Stomach ache, fever, leg pain?

My child has been complaining of a stomach ache since last night. Well, just now he came to me to check his head for a fever (he is obsessed with fever checks every time he's sick) and he said his legs hurt so bad and he was limping and had a hard time standing up. What is this? I'm waiting for the doc to call me back right now, hopefully soon!

He said it sounded like the flu and to make an appt for the morning. He responded to Tylenol and now his legs are fine. I did some Dr. Googling and the 1st thing that popped up was meningitis! I have to stop googling!

Hand foot and mouth started for us with a fever and bad aches. That's not terrible to get.

But don't go googling! Otherwise he will end up with 14 obscure incurable diseases!

Things to look out for, splotchy red marks below his trunk, extremely high fever. My DS1 possibly had a viral strain of Meningitis. Those are the things we were watching out for.
