I have severe joint pain and stiffness.My ESR value is 127. The pain is worsened after my c-section 4 months back. 2 yrs before i had Chikun Guniya and suffered for 1 year.... im worried if it could be something serious. Could you help me. Thank you.
I am sorry to read you had the chikunguniya virus. I have read about it because of other posts in this forum. Since you suffered from it for a year and then it seemed to clear, I would not think this is related to the virus. From what I have read, you can suffer with the joint pain for years, but I have not read anything indicating it could reactivate.
What other tests have you had besides the ESR? Do you have those results? Do you have any other symptoms - even ones that seem unrelated?
