: a good friend of ours is suffering from what the GP has said is acute reactive arthritis. It started one day two years ago in his little finger and now affects every joint in his body. My friend is convinced it is caused by a reaction to food of some sort but has continually got worse and has tried diet changes,chinese medicine, chemo,etc etc. He is losing weight quite dramatically and findind life more and more difficult. Can anyone advise us on a course of action or treatment that he should be asking for. It would appear that his GP has let him down badly and life is becoming unbearable for him. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who can offer advice. Thanks
:Has he had allergy testing? Also, he could be lacking in vitamin/minerals. Dr. could also test for that. Stress and a lack of rest also effect it alot.
