I had Rheumatic fever when I was 9 and I am now 50. I live in the tablelands of nsw australia. So winter is pretty cold and summer very hot. However at this stage of my life I find that my joints and bones are aching all the time and I was wondering if anybody else wonders if they have the same symptoms is it related to rheumatic fever and if so is there any research ongoing. I know of one other person who has the same problems, similar age but she also had heart damage when she was a child.
