Many symptoms of chikungunya are similar to dengue. As a result of this, it can be easily misdiagnosed in areas where both these diseases are common. If the place of your residence is close to any mosquito breeding sites, you are at a very high risk of chikungunya and other mosquito-borne diseases like dengue and zika. If chikungunya is not tested at the right time, it does not even reflect in lab results.
Chikungunya fever is caused by a virus of the arbovirus group (of the family Togaviridae). The disease is transmitted by the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. Aedes aegypti mosquito bites during the day. Mosquitoes become infected while feeding on the blood of an infected person, and spread an infection to other individuals they bite. The infection occurs mostly during the monsoon season when mosquitoes are at their greatest numbers.
The symptoms of chikungunya virus are similar to those of other diseases such as dengue fever. The symptoms normally appear just a few days after a mosquito has bitten an individual. The most common symptoms are:
- fever (sometimes as high as 104 °F)
- joint pain
- a headache
- muscle pain
- swelling around the joints
As of now, there is no definite treatment for chikungunya. Your doctor will recommend symptomatic treatment which includes rest, drinking plenty of fluids, medications to reduce fever.
According to a recent study, chloroquine is probably an effective treatment for arthritis-like symptoms that are not relieved by aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). However further studies are required before it can be recommended as a standard treatment for arthritis-like symptoms in chikungunya fever.
According to homeopathic experts, there are effective drugs for chikungunya treatment in homeopathy. These drugs can prevent as well as hasten recovery from chikungunya.
