Reactive arthritis causes & treatment. ( DOCTOR’S TIPS )

Pain and stiffness in and around one or more joints are common symptoms for most types of arthritis. The most common infection causing reactive arthritis is the sexually transmitted disease (STD) chlamydia. There’s no cure for reactive arthritis, but the condition is usually temporary and treatment can help to relieve your symptoms. Most people will make a full recovery in about six months, although around one in five cases lasts a year or more, and a small number of people experience long-term joint problems. Chlamydia is the most common cause of reactive arthritis in the United States and is usually acquired through sexual contact. Salmonella, Shigella, Yersinia, and Campylobacter may cause a gastrointestinal infection that can trigger reactive arthritis. Reactive arthritis, formerly known as Reiter’s syndrome, is a form of inflammatory arthritis that develops in response to an infection in another part of the body (cross-reactivity). Coming into contact with bacteria and developing an infection can trigger the disease. When a person has an inflammatory condition like reactive arthritis, signs of inflammation are present in the blood. A blood sample may be taken to test for inflammatory markers such as: CRP. C- Reactive Protein.( DOCTOR’S TIPS )
