In brief: Time to heal

Rheumatic fever can be associated with sydenham's chorea, which can often be controlled with medication.
Typically, as the rheumatic fever resolves, the chorea should likewise remit, but this could involve a period of several weeks to months. A neurologist with experience in movement disorders should be able to help.
