Hello, I had a viral fever on Nov 3to6. Temp was abt 105 deg.. During fever itself the joint pains started. Couldn't even sit in sofa and wake-up... After a week it came under manageable pain. Almost a month it continues. So I decided to go for check up on nov 25th. Doc told it may b a post viral symptoms also he take a look on my joints and said no inflammation. He also prescribed rantac b4 food and signoflam aft food for 5days twice a day.While taking tablet no pain at all. Aft 5days now the pain s again with severity... Wrist, finger bones, 10cms below knee joint, sides of thigh muscle (not in bone). All the pain in right side only... Y it's paining this much.. How long take it ll get cure? Or need go for checkup again. I don't want to take a pain killer on regular basis. Now am doing home remedies using hot water bag. Thank you

Dr N C Gupta has advised rightly. I would like to add that post viral arthritis may take weeks to go away. Take it seriously, you may visit some other doctor for a second opinion too. You may require a low dose of steroid also depending on the severity of the disease
