My wife had a sudden body pain attack we need medical advice before undergoing medical treatment?
my name is (…),I want to ask a question about rheumatology. my wife had a sudden body pain attack and all the joints swollen and lots of body pain about 2 months ago,she is 40 years old and she has no any type of medical illness the pain came just overnight.
we consulted a rheumatologist (…),did some tests and were advised to take 6 months of medicine.
before taking medicines i want to have an expert advise on my wife’s case.
attached are all the documents done November with medical if possible can I have a medical advice.
In my opinion i recommend you see an urologist as i suspecting kidney problem
(Yes can cause all body pain)
Check for protein in urine
Honestly i have no idea why your rheumatologist prescribed medication (may be symptomatic treatment )
. If all tests come back negative, it can sometimes help to do a repeat test at a later date, since false-negative tests results are possible when certain autoimmune conditions are in “remission.”
Do not take a long term therapy for undiagnosed problem in my opinion ..
from the above reports ,all tests seem to be negative and i do not feel any reason for taking any long term medical treatment.
if there is no diagnosis made,then what kind of medicines are you going to be prescribed?
get diagnosis confirmed first rather than taking any medicines blindly.
SUDDEN BODY PAIN ATTACK CAN BE CAUSED BY ACUTE EXACERBATION OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS BUT IT IS NOT THE ONLY CAUSE.
MANY VIRAL FEVERS,BLOOD DISTURBANCES CAN ALSO CAUSE SUCH SYMPTOMS.
GET DETAILED BLOOD INVESTIGATIONS DONE INCLUDING RA TEST,CRP ETC
above reports do not show anything significant.
but before undergoing any form of treatment the underlying pathology needs to be established.
get detailed blood investigations done.
consult a physician
