Hand pain in 28yr old without swelling and normal ASLO is less likely to RF. It could be artritis, trauma and does not subside in few days you should see a rheumatologist or orthopedician

How long will joint pain last after taking doxycylcine hydate? I took the medication 2 times a day for seven days for chlamydia. After taking a single dose of antibiotics, the std did not go away. So I waited about three months or more and tested positive for Chlamydian again. So the Dr. prescribed me doxyxylcine. On a couple of occasions, mostly morning, I had nausea. One of the mornings I went to grab the remote and got an alarming pain in my left elbow on both sides of the joint (bicep/tricep). And it has continued to spread throughout my other joints on both sides: knees, knuckles, and elbows. I stopped taking the medication on 5-28-14. I d like to know what s the usual recovery time from this side effect if at all? I work out and I have had to stop all activity due to this problem.

My husband has nausea, stomach cramps and diahorrea, along with generally feeling "unwell". Symptoms have persisted for 5 days or more. He is 53 years old and usually in reasonable health, although he takes medication for high blood pressure and sometimes diclofenac for arthritic-type joint pain. He is a smoker (pipe) and fairly heavy drinker (cider, 4-6 pints per day). He is also a coarse fisherman (lakes and rivers) and works in a dog day-care centre. Any ideas?
