How can joint pain along with chills and fever be treated?

I have muscle and joint aches, chills, and a 100.3 degree fever. My biggest concern is that my urine flow has decreased over 50% in the last 48 hours. I have pressure and need to urinate, but it takes a while and then comes out at a much reduced rate.

The common causes are viral fever, malaria, dengue, chikungunya, urinary tract infection, typhoid, any other infections.

Treatment depends upon underlying conditions; do complete hemogram, and Smear test for malaria parasite, dengue NS1, urine routine. You can take tablet Paracetamol, try to avoid NSAIDs, keep yourself hydrated and maintain hygiene.

I will suggest you to follow up with detailed history or consult with physician for detailed examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
