Hello,

Sometimes a simple virus will trigger someone's genetic predisposition toward auto-immune joint disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. I believe this is what happened to me at age 5 when I developed RA symptoms after a common childhood illness.

I believe your friend needs to be evaluated by a rheumatologist - he needs more than painkillers. Hopefully this episode will pass once his immune system settles down, but it won't hurt to be checked out by a specialist.
