Hi. For some patients joint pain subsides soon after fever subsides but in some elderly patients joint pain continues for months . Its due to low immunity and damage caused due to inflammatory reaction. Pain killers helps in relieving from pain but not good at this age . Try homeopathy or ayurveda .
