Can I have aquired Rheumatoid arthritis after a catheter ablation I have been in crucial pain since having this operation done several weeks ago Doctors dont knw what it is have done blood tests and it comes up with infection in body but dont know where it is coming from, Pasin travels all round by body and nothing touches it not even morphine. Can t go on much longer like this waiting to see a Rheumatologist but coould be weeks. I need help.
Rheumatoid arthritis is never acquired though a few factors may trigger it, ablation not being one of them. I would suggest considering an evaluation by an internist or a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.
