Thanks for the details

The presence of fever with pain indicate a likely viral infection

It can also give rise to pain in various parts of the bodies

The pain in arms is likely due to thrombosis as it take time for recanalization

You should take Paracetamol only for symptomatic relief cautiously as there is an increased risk of bleeding due to drug interaction

Please do let me know if you have any other question
