I previously posted a question about what moderate chronic non-specific inflammation of the colon meant. Now I would like to know if campylobacter infection can cause chronic inflammation, because I had bleeding and diarrhea several months prior to the onset of fever and severe abdominal pain. Now in addition to this I have had arthritis type of pain, but now it is worse. Could this be reactive arthritis to this infection? If so, how can I control the pain as it is effecting my feet and making it difficult to walk? I have been treated for the campylobacter infection but still have 3-5 formed stools a day and occasional bleeding. The doctor said I had proctitis but this could have been caused by the campylobacter and the only way to know for sure would be to re-endoscope after infection has cleared. I really do not want to have to do that. So I would like to know if campylobacter would cause acute or chronic inflammation of the intestine and associated arthritis pain? He also mentioned microscopic colitis as a cause but seemed to change his mind with regard to that.
Thanks for your help.
