Shifting pain in left arm

The problem started a few days after a brief bout of high fever. All the joints became tight and the limbs lost strength. Doctors stated that this pain would continue for nearly 2-3 years and advised me not to take any pain killer. There is acute pain which originates from left shoulder and keeps shifting without any regularity or method. It is very painful to raise my arm beyond 85 degrees from the front and totally impossible to bed in the rear of the body.
