Question: Hello Doctor,
I am 32 year old. 6 weeks back, I had a fever that lasted for 4-5 days, followed by rashes, and extreme body/leg pains. The fever and rashes have come down, but the pains in my joints (legs, feet/ankle, wrists, fingers) is continuing even after six weeks. The pains are higher after rest, in the mornings, and after sitting for long. They are significantly higher, necessitating me to hold on from walking moving for a few minutes, till the pain gets more manageable. I am not using any medicines at this point, but I am beginning to panic if it will take longer for them to go off, and for me to return to my normal state.
