In brief: NOT NECESSARILY
Rest may be beneficial during acute rheumatic fever, but whether rest is necessary for the heart disease will depend in large part on the severity of heart changes due to the arf.
This should be discussed with your primary care physician and cardiologist.

In brief: No
This was the older therapy in the early disease course it depends l their clinical status.
Bed rest is less likely imposed now but their can be clinical settings that need that. If the cardiac function is good it is less indicated.
