I was diagnosed with reactive arthritis 4 weeks ago after spending a week in hospital in severe pain. It took 3 visits to my GP to convince him that something was wrong and only when I could not get out of bed did my daughter demand a home visit which resulted in my admission to hospital. I had food poisoning a few days before whish turned out to be campylabactor, but I had been getting pains in my joints for over a month prior to this. My shoulders are the worst but my hips, knees, elbows and wrists are not too far behind. When I ask how long I am going to be like this the answer I get is \"How long is a piece of string\"? I am currently taking 8 Paracetamol, 8 Tramadol and 3 Diclofenac per day, and woe betide my if I miss any. Can anyone please offer some hope.
