Call in for guidance: Tamiflu works best if taken within hours of the first symptoms. It doesn't kill the germs but can slow them down until they die. The leg (calf) pains are common & persistent. Persistent fever & cough may indicate a bit of pneumonia coming on. I'd call for guidance by the doc on call.
