Trembling And Stiff After Being Hit By Chikungunya?
Good evening doctor, in November 2009 I was affected by Chikungunya, after recovering there was an oddity that has not healed until now. When I’m exhausted, nervousness / adrenaline is rising I always tremble badly and all the backbone to the neck feels stiff. Does it have something to do with Chikungunya?
