Do you travel frequently? If yes, when you get fever with muscular and joint pain you are likely to pass it off as common flu. Experts advise you to get tested for Chikungunya. It is caused by infected mosquitoes. They can bite you during day as well as at night time. The symptoms appear 4-7 days after the mosquito bite. It is not fatal and doctors generally give you fever reducing pills. One of the best way to control this disease is the ayurvedic treatment for chikungunya. Bad news is that there is no vaccine for it. Keep your body covered, avoid sleeping outdoors, use bed nets and mosquito repellents with DEET. Prevention is truly the best cure!
