Aso positive and arthritis
Hi

A friend of mine had a swelling in her right ankle for quite a few months. She never had any pain though. On consulting a doctor last month, she was detected with ASO positive and is also suspected of arthritis. She has been asked to take antibiotics for 3 months and has to take 6 dosages of pennicillin injection at an  interval of 21 days. Can  someone please let me know more about ASO and arthritis? Do these medicines have some side effects specially during menstruation? What precautions are to be taken ? Is yoga or some exercise helpful in this case?

A quick reply will be highly appreciated.

If an ASO is over 300 it can indicate an increased Rheumatoid Factor which can be an indicator of several types of arthritis.  This shouldn't have any effect on her menstruation.  Yoga is a good exercise and especially if she has a type of arthritis.  She should ensure if she is on birth control pills that she uses an alternative protection method as antibiotics can cause the hormones to not be readily absorbed.
