Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The joint pain that you have is not likely to be related to PID while your other symptoms are suggestive of PID. Do consult a gynecologist for treatment.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello, About three years ago I was diagnosed with PID, however I didnt get tested until about a month after having sex, so it was unidentified for that period of time. I was then given the antibiotics and have now stopped seeing that partner. I have now been with my current partner for two years, and we have been trying for a baby for nine months. Over the last few weeks i have been getting lower abdominal pains which are constantly there, but go from a dull to a sharp pain. I have seen several gps, the first doctor said it was ibs, the second doctor said it was a pulled muscle, and the third doctor said it could be an infection, so i was told to go the STI Clinic. I had tests done and the nurse there seemed to think it could be PID again, so both me and my partner have been given antibiotics which we have both nearly finished. I am still suffering with the pains, and especially after sex. I am growing really concerned as to whether I am infertile and thats why we didnt conceive, or whether the pains and PID could be linked to that? Please can you help me as my mind needs to be put at rest.

I am 32 years old. I have always been healthy. I recently started having joint pain and swelling in my right hand. The joint pain was not constant. After a few weeks, I went to my primary care. I was experiencing, brain fog, I lost about 10 pounds in 6 weeks without trying. The pain has traveled to my wrists, feet and elbows and at times I have lost a range of movement. I am chronically fatigued. In the morning I have stiffness that last about an hour. And at night the pain is severe enough that I can t sleep. My primary care sent me to a rheumatologist. She did blood work and took x-rays. My inflammation marker came back at 16, I have a vitamin b deficiency and my bilirubin was high. I have rheumatoid arthritis in my family, but the dr does not think that is my issue. She does not know what the problem is, because I do not have any other blood work symptoms indicating I have RA.

Hi, I have been having diarrhoea since two weeks. I was having sever fever accompanied with joint pains. I was given some antibiotics after one week of fever. The moment I started taking antibiotics I started getting diarrhoea, I thought it was the antibiotics causing it. After the antibiotics and pain killers were over, I started getting very severe shoulder, joints and lower back pain with some twitching of my feet and fingers. Also accompanied by some head ache with hot headed feeling. I consulted a local doctor, but I was only advised some back exercises and wait out the diarrhoea. But it has been almost 2 weeks of diarrhoea with joint pains. I have not been given any medication for diarrhoea. For back pain I have been taking dexibuprofen. The diarrhoea was not becase of dexibuprofen as I even tested stopping the drug for more than 48 hours before continuing it. Please advice. My feaces sample is sent out but I am awaiting results.

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.
