A friend who got Chikungunya 2 years ago is still suffering from severe knees pain. Why ? and which treatment could give her relief ? I suppose chloroquine makes no sens now ! Are there any anti inflamatory medicines effective ?

If anybody has an answer, Thanks in advance.

in some individuals permanent damage of joint surfaces will occur this could be the reason for prolonged pains.we need one immuno modulator drug.In my opinion tablet Methotrexate7.5mg weekly once for 6wks to be given and during this period wkly blood counts under the supervision of physician is mandatory.

Mr. Ravi i think its wrong. People: pls Dont consume Methotrexate drug until and unless you are in severe condition of lifethreatning cancer.
you must do consult a physician before you go.

I've had joint pains for 18 mths now. I was on cortisone and chloroquinine. Cortisone helped with pain, but terrible side effects. Acupuncture twice a week really helped. I'm still in pain, but swelling has come down and it isn't as severe as before.

Tab.Chloroquine twice daily for 2 weeks and then once daily for a month will surely be very effective treatment. As I took the treatment in 2007.

you can take homoeopathic medicine after studying indivisualising symptoms of patient, so can't get disease specific prescription , but homoeopathy will surely help.

Treating with steroids such as dexamathasone, Prednisole should be avoided. Giving small exercise, hot water or hot bath with portable heaters, application of external pain killers such a aceclofenac or diclofenac or ibubrufen like voveran, nise in gel form may give relief in pain. Taking oral cox2 inhibiters may releive the pain. But adviced to take methycobalamine along with B complex tablets. like neurobion or met- neurobion is helpful.
