My wife has developed acute pain in her wrist, knee, plams, fingers etc after 2 months after delivery. This is a rotating pain. Sometimes there is pain in wrist, next day in plams and so on.

Doctor asked us to do ASO test. Test has reading of 306 which is more than the normal level which is written as 200 in that report. After seeing that report doctor said that this might be because of Rheumatic Fever. But she had not faced any symptoms of that like throat infection or any fever in the last 1 month.

Is there any other reason for the ASO test to come as positive? Her age is 26yrs. Are there any chances of the Rheumatic Fever?
