Hi all. Haven't posted anything for ages as been trying to cope with going back to work. Done ok all things considered. However I'm still getting joint swelling and pain usually in my upper limbs, worse with activity like driving, writing, chopping etc. I've spoken to a medical friend of mine over the phone who wonders if I actually have a reactive arthritis following a nasty chest infection I had at Xmas. My joint problems came on at the end of the following March. My own doctor had ruled it out based on the time delay but my friend says she's seen people present with this even after months. Anyone else confirm the same?
