Aching Joints after flu like symptoms have gone??


I have been experiencing flu like symptoms for a week but they seemed to subside a few days ago but that same night (two nights ago) my joints in my hands, knees, shoulders and ankles started to ache quite a bit.

Its been going on for two days now and there is no pattern, my thumb joint may ache for a few hours as well as my right knee, then they stop aching and its my ankle and it goes on. It doesnt wake me up and night but is hurts during the day. I have taken cod liver oil, multivitamins and glucostamine sulphate for 6 months now and im only 24 in good health except for the flu like symptoms.

Now I feel physically fine, no fatgiue or fever etc but my joints are fairly painful all over.

My skin is a darker colour and when you push it with your finger it turns noticeably white as if it has too much blood...if that makes sense?

Any ideas?

Body pain from a virus is common, and usually resolves in a few days after rest and light exercise. If your joints are swollen, though, go to a doctor right away.

Any chance you could have Lyme disease?
