Several years ago, I developed joint aches and pains for several months following a parvo-virus infection. One of my children (a toddler at the time) had 5th's Disease and my doctor was astute enough to test me for parvo, which is the virus that causes this disease in children. I did feel better eventually, but it took at least 6-9 months I believe.
