    It sounds as if you have Reiter's arthritis?  This is a reactive arthritis - you will probably need a course of antibiotics, either short high dose or longer term low dose to completely remove the cause of your arthritis.  I think Doxycycline is the antibiotic of choice?  It's worth looking up in the professional part of this site or on the NICE guidance - I can't post the link here or the post will need to be moderated.
