Am sure that you are having symptoms of reactive arthritis. Control of the arthritis is possible by controling the infection along with gaining control over the various reactive agents, inside your body.
Regarding the time period, mentioned as 6 weeks, we have seen patients coming with reactive arthritis, having an interval of 3 months also. Hence, there is a high possibility of this condition.
Yo may get yourself tested for Gonnorehea or Chlamidya also. But do get the HIV re-tested after 6 months also. Are you having a poor or risky sexual history?
Please let me know further, so that i can answer you further.
Also if i get tested for gonnorehea and chlamidya again will they just show up on my urine test. If they are causing reactive arthiritis?
And I have just been prescribed Diclofenac
So I did get my HIV test and Gonnorehea and Chlamidya two month since last unprotected vaginal sexual exposure. They all came back negative. My pains have subsided very much without even taking any medication. I have become very itchy lately and jock itch which hasnt gone in the past month.
Doctors say I dont need to test again?
What do you suggest?
