My wife has pain in her ankle post suspected Chikungunya fever , it increases when she gets up after a small rest or lying down for a while . Her work also requires her to wear heals .Please suggest future course of action
The symptoms for chickenguniya or post viral infection continues till around 6 months.
Pain follows lower extremity is most common, proper precautions should be taken in routine like avoid wearing heels till pain subsides, if there is work related issues in that case she can also take up with plateform heels
Further hot and cold fomentations alternatively will give relief, along with stretching of calf and hamstring muscles, ankle pumps will prove beneficial, proper water intake recommended along with proper rest
