so sorry to hear that you've had it for 8 years. yes it's a scary thing because it can attack the heart and kidneys and eyes besides the joints and the skin. my rheumatologist does not prescribe Antibiotics and doesnt do blood tests for bacteria and infections other than lyme so did you get your Antibiotics prescription from an Internist or an Infectious disease doc. How long are you supposed to take the Antibiotics for.
i never take medicine but this doesnt seem like a disease i wanna mess around with. i'd rather take antibiotics that have an organ failure or worse. i want to combine the antibiotics with teasel and other herbs and bob beck's protocol with ozonated water and silver and maybe even the rest anti-parasitic and anti-viral herbs but i still haven't found a doc that prescribes the antibiotics.
interesting all the info online says that reactive Arthritis goes away within a few weeks or a few months. but you had it for 8 years. was it always painful or was it back and forth?
did your doc isolate the specific bacteria in your blood thats causing it or he is using wide range of antibiotics?
