On 30-09-2015 I had high fever which prolonged for 5 days and the fever was gone, but pain occupied entire body. The pain was severe in the wrist, fingers, knee joint, ankle, leg muscles and when consulted physician, I was informed that it was Ortho Viral attack and some medicines were prescribed. Later two more physicians consulted who informed me that pain may continue for 6-7 months. Even now I have severe pain, which is not allowing me to walk freely. Will you please help me to get rid of this viral effect?
In most cases, viral arthritis runs its course fairly quickly. Your doctor may recommend a medication to help with the discomfort. Most of the time this will be an over-the-counter pain reducer like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Your doctor may also recommend use of hot or cold packs on the inflamed joints and rest.
