Brief Answer:
Sero-negative polyarthralgia

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

It seems that you have sero-negative polyarthralgia/polyarthritis.

Infections that may cause polyarticular symptoms include HIV infection; hepatitis B and C infections. You have also mild hypochromic microcytic anemia, which indicates chronic illness or inflammation. You may undergo anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) and serum HBsAg and anti-HCV antibody test.

Hi, My daughter is 6 years old and has been suffering from intermittent fever up to 103 and chronic cough for the past 15 days. She is on Augmintin DDS 5 ml b.i.d. and ibuprofen syrup t.i.d. for the past 7 days. Her urinalysis and platelet count are normal, but in CBC the result shows microcytic anemia and she has a low SGPT value of 15 and her SGOT is slightly high at 39. Kindly suggest what would be the reason for her intermittent fever and cough.

does very low haemoglobin cause severe acne? I'm 42, on lithium, and have been quite low in iron for most of my life (microcytic anemia) and need transfusions about once a year. My normal is 90, and when I am below 80 (70s or less) I get very bad cycstic acne. I also have Familial Mediterranean Fever. I'm about 140 pounds.
