Arthralgia

I have had a number of health problems over the last year.

Started with a difficult to diagnose or clear infection in urethra and epididymis.  Had all the tests (GUM and GP and nothing showed) This cleared up after 3 months (after 1 month of cipro) but almost immediately after I had a short bout of GBS (not debilitating) but diagnosed by a neurologist as such.  I got mild flares from time to time following this but about 4 months later I developed arthralgia starting fingers, toes, knees, hips and now 3 months later the back.  

Flares come and go, mainly resulting in crepitus and bearable level of pain.  No evidence of swelling or redness at joints, just pain.

I have seen a rheumatologist who has done extensive tests and rheumatoid seems to be ruled out.  I was put on Lodine and omeprazole and this reduced some discomfort but probably hasn't worked.  

I don't really know what to do next - urologist, neurologist, rheumatologist?  How can I get a joined-up answer?  My GP just wants to go with osteoarthritis but I don't accept that given the history over the last year.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction here.  Thanks

Hi palais!

Remember me? It's been a few months. Your name and the mention of GBS jogged my memory!
Too bad that not much progress has been made, since that time.
Underlying infectious conditions, possibly triggered by the GBS, must be investigated, along with candidiasis, must be investigated thoroughly.
I suspect that you will find a strong connection there.

Dr. Garth Nicolson is here for 2 more days to answer A/I questions.
You may also visit his website for detailed information.

Cheers!
Niko
