The history is very typical of viral infection.
High grade fever with chills associated with myalgia and arthralgia.
Symptomatic treatment should be provided.
Pain during walking is more in favour of Chikungunya fever.
To confirm do a serology test.
If chikungunya fever is confirmed than addition of steroid will help in symptomatic relief.
