Q. I contracted chikungunya while I was on a vacation to India. It is more than 3 months now, but the pain has not gone. I used to take NICIP MR in India, which gave some relief. I am taking Robinaxol, but to no avail. I have too much pain. Please advise.

A.  Some patients with chikungunya have prolonged fatigue lasting several weeks. Also, some patients have reported incapacitating joint pain, or arthritis which may last for weeks or months. There is no specific treatment other than symptomatic treatment with painkillers.
