Hi Judy,

Thanks for writing in.

The possibilities I can think of in your case are Viral fever, Connective tissue disorders, Inflammatory arthritis etc.

If it is viral fever, it is a self limiting condition. This normally presents with high grade fever,headache, body and joint pains etc. Treatment is mainly symptomatic with paracetamol, rest and plenty of fluids to drink.

Your high pulse rate 155 might be due to the fever.

The other conditions I mentioned require many blood tests etc. Complete blood picture with Total count and differential count to see if it is a bacterial or viral infection , ESR, etc.

It will be possible to come to a diagnosis only after the tests.

Hope you feel better soon.......
