Thanks for submitting your question. From your history it can be a case of viral fever leading to viral arthritis. In viral arthritis one has fever in the beginning which may last for 1 to 2 weeks following which viral arthritis can occur giving rise to joint pain. Generally viral disease is difficult to diagnose , blood test may come normal hence it is a clinical diagnosis. Usually viral fever is self limitting which will subside on its own and only symptomatic treatment is required. Pain killers should only be taken only if its severe joint pain which is not bearable.Joint pain may last for 6 months to one year. So i think you should not worry , it will come down on its own . Its is always advisible to consult doctor and follow instructions properly . Best wishses
