Chikungunya joint pain

About a month ago, chikungunya fever hits my father with sevre body and joint pain, fever got normal within 4-5 days with allopathy medication but the pain doesn't seems to go away. Already suffering from multiple myeloma and it's back pain, he is going through a very difficult time with the sevre pain in the whole body. He is on paracetamol that provides little temporary relief for few hours, also tried an homeopathic medicine last week named "polyporus pinicola 200", but that didn't work too. Someone please help me out and suggest something on how to get rid of this joint and body pain. I shall be very thankful to you.
