My knees and ankles are hurting for 8 months, it was harder in first few months. I could hardly walk only for few minutes and I was so depressed. My pain started with knees and then went to the ankles. I had some inflammation as well.
Took several months till I was told I have reactive rheumatism. Nothing is visible from my blood test though. I feel better now but I have again good and bad days and mild fatigue. I am taking methotrexate 7.5 each week for 2 months now. Haven't felt much effect yet. I am constantly being told by doctor when I have pain I should take painkillers. But I want to see pain really go away not to put myself on drugs just not to feel it. I can of course do my daily activities and it is not severe pain.
I would like to know:
1- if all of you diagnosed with reactive rheumatism had some infection detected and took antibiotics.
2-did you have to take synovial fluid test?
3- was anything visible in your MRI? My MRI is all ok.
4-are you ok now? How long you were or have been involved with reactive rheumatism?
5- what natural remedies and diet helps you?
Wish you all health
