Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, before taking any of these medicines have you seen a doctor? Is there a history of certain illnesses or injuries that you have experienced before around the painful area?
Pain in the area of the elbow and knee that appears accompanied by fever can indicate an inflammation of the joints, for example due to rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis itself is one type of autoimmune disorder, which occurs when immune cells mistakenly attack cells in the joint blanket (synovium). As a result, the joints, cartilage, and surrounding bone will experience inflammation. Clinically, sufferers can experience pain around the joints, stiff, swollen, warm, and difficult to move. It could also be other systemic complaints, such as fever, weakness, fatigue, and weight loss that is quite drastic. Almost all joints can experience symptoms due to rheumatoid arthritis, not to mention the elbow and knee joints.
In addition to rheumatoid arthritis, pain in the elbows and knees as you experience can also occur due to other triggers, for example gout arthritis (arthritis due to gout), fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain that appears accompanied by mood disorders, sleep, stamina, and memory), viral or bacterial infections, peripheral neuropathy (peripheral nerve damage), deficiency of neurotrophic vitamins or minerals, pinched nerves, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
Before the obvious causes of pain and fever that you experience, we recommend that you do not carelessly consume drugs, especially drugs that are not included over-the-counter drugs, such as dexamethasone and mefenamic acid. Consumption of this drug without a clear medical indication risks causing you to experience allergies, increased gastric acid, gastrointestinal bleeding, other bleeding disorders, decreased endurance, recurrent infections, including swelling of the body and obesity as you experience today.
Check with yourself first to a doctor or neurologist so that further tests can be done regarding your complaint. If the doctor suspects rheumatoid arthritis, he can recommend that you undergo laboratory tests, X-rays, MRI, ultrasound, or joint fluid examination to establish the diagnosis. Handling can later be done with a variety, such as by giving anti-inflammatory drugs, NSAIDs, DMARD, chemotherapy, physiotherapy, and even surgery.
At this time, in order for the pain and fever to subside, it is safer if you take the drug paracetamol first while compressing it with warm water or ice water on your elbows and painful knees. Be diligent in exercising 3 to 5 times a week to help maintain your muscular and joint strength. If the pain is quite disturbing, take a break from excessive physical activity. It could also, you consume fish oil which, according to a variety of literature can help minimize inflammation in the joints.
Hope this helps ...
