High fever and joint pain

My Dad is suffering from fever (generally around 101 F) and joint pains, he is not able to walk properly because of pain in knees (the pain is on whole body), the symptoms are of Chikunguniya or Dengue but we are not confirmed as of now. This is since yesterday. What to do?

Hello...
Well first thing is now a days most of the viral fever is presenting with going pains and not only dengue and chicken gunya.... And i need to know it's been how many days since the symptoms have started....is its already been more than 5 days I suggest you to go for blood tests and meet a physician....you also need to drink water well and have food adequately as there is no specific treatment for viral fever...thank you
