@bhusan Hello, Viral arthritis is usually self-limiting and usually lasts for less than a week. But some patients can progress to a chronic stage where the joint inflammation or joint pains can continue for weeks, months, or sometimes even years. Seek medical help if the problem persists beyond 6 weeks. You can also take ice application, heat application. Early diagnosis can help doctors dispense the appropriate treatment so that you are neither undertreated nor overtreated.
