This is arthralgia associated with viral infection
After reading your feedback I am sure that it is viral arthralgia. this joint pain and swelling is due to viral infection in blood causing inflammation of the joints. I would suggest you to get following investigations.
These tests will confirm the diagnosis .After getting all above test I would suggest you to start following treatment after discussing with your physcian.
1. Tablet Brufen twice daily
2. Broad spectrum antibiotic to prevent secondary infection.Antibiotic has to be decided by your physcian.
3. Good fluid intake and rest.
4. Also make sure that your blood pressure is with in normal limit which can some time increase calf swelling.
I hope these measures will help you. Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
