Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
When you get a viral infection you can also get a reactive arthritis which is inflammation in the joints because of the virus. This is self limiting and usually improves as the other symptoms from the virus get better. Until it spontaneously improves anti-inflammatory medication can help.
