I was diagnosed with these three things Thursday by my opthalmologist. He seemed very concerned about it being an initial attack of arthritis and wants me to see a Rheumatologist as soon as possible. I've done some research and find that there is a link to arthritis with each of these conditions but am wondering if the link to arthritis is strongly indicated in my case because I have all three of these things going on at once?
Also is it common for all three of these to come on at once and so quickly? I went from having a clear eye with some pain on Monday to being in the ER with it by Wednesday night because of the pain, redness and swelling.
Thank you for reading.
