    Following on from my previous comment on 1/1/13. We ended up phoning NHS direct at 1am on 2/1/13 as my son's issue with his left leg worsed. He could not move, sit, stand or walk and was in a lot of pain. They advised us to go to out of hours GP. To cut long story short they were worried that he may have an infection in hip joint which would mean emergency surgery. Had Xrays and blood tests which were all clear. Had ultrasound which showed fluid on his hip. Alarm bells! Then had MRI scan under general anasthetic to see where fluid coming from and rule out infection. Lots of investigation from bone specialists etc, the outcome was this. He had 'benign reactive arthritis' which was brought on by his flu virus. Google it. It's quite common. A temporary thing that rights itself after a period of time. All to do with immune system. My son has fully recovered and is walking fine. Going for check up in few weeks. Hope this helps. Kelly.
