I have been working in the yard alot in the

Patient : I have been working in the yard alot in the last 45 days or so, I took on an area with weeds and tall grads that hasnt been touched for years. I did receive multiple bug bites which I assume are chigger bites, a week later my knees just started to swell up, I literLly saw it happen, they are still swollen/inflammed but not as bad. I still have the on my thighs, but they are now bruising almost 2 months later. I a 41 year old wen with to children, I live in the suburbs of Boston and have a very physical and high paced job, should I be concerned?
