Joint pain following a viral fever is very common. In India , the commonest virus causing arthritis( joint pain and swelling) is chikungunya virus. Its initial feature may be similar to dengue virus. So May be ur mother had chikungunya fever initially. Post- chikungunya , joint problems can persist in 15-20 percent people. It can be treated very well. Please do consult a Rheumatologist( specialist in joint pain management).
