Reactive Arthritis is usually triggered by an infection that is acquired by contaminated food or sexual intercourse. Patients often experience severe pain and swelling of the knees, ankles or feet. Heel pain is also common. Many patients will develop mouth sores, redness or pain of the eyes or discomfort with urination. Any associated sexually transmitted disease should be treated as soon as possible. Short term treatment may be adequate for acute symptoms, but long term medication is recommended if symptoms become persistent.
Choosing Your San Antonio Reactive Arthritis Specialist
It's not easy selecting the right doctor who will take the time to understand your particular needs so that they can better help you understand your condition and its treatment. So it is imperative that you ask the right questions:
- Does your specialist have first-hand experience at serving those most affected by Reactive Arthritis?
- Is your specialist recognized and respected by her peers as an active patient advocate?
- Is your specialist board certified in both Rheumatology and Internal Medicine?
