Severe joints pain

I got high fever 3 weeks back and was admitted in manipal hospital for a week. My Blood pressure was very low and was completely dehydrated. I was given lot of IV fluids. My fever came down and my blood pressure is also normal now. But I developed severe joints pain in my hands, toes and knees. I am unable to do even my daily house hold work. I was given pain killers by another physician but in vain. I am now taking capsule Megabid 50 MG and chloroquine 200. Please suggest what I should do to get relief from this pain and lead a normal life. Thanks
