Hand pain in fingers

Hi Doctor. My mother has been suffering from acute pain in her left hand and fingers for a few weeks. She had a fever sometime back and has been suffering from this pain ever since. We got her tests for chickengunia etc done so we know she didn't have any of that. Could this be a neuromuscular pain ?

Viral fever these days do have a tendency to increase the latent bone and joint pains. It could be because of that. However if it's just one hand and fingers and especially if it increases at night with some numbness in the fingers it could very well be a carpal tunnel syndrome. She needs to be assessed physically before making a final diagnosis as the treatment for both these conditions would vary.

Please check whether she is having early morning stiffness which gradually decrease by mid noon. If so we can suspect rheumatoid arthritis... you can also have a blood investigation for RA factor.
