Common Questions and Answers about Viral infection of joints

infection

Avatar f tn Fever with joint pains is seen in viral fevers (especially Chickungunya), typhoid, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and other auto immune disorders. Localized infection of inflammation of joints can also cause fever and joint pains. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn In addition, your symptoms are far more suggestive of a community acquired viral illness of some sort (not an STD) than any typical STD. Assessment- close to zero risk. No testing is warranted for this. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn with the condom intact and not making genital skin contact outside the condom area you would not be at any std risk. Not sure where the blood is from but check yourself for a cut from the condom use.
Avatar f tn In addition, if your sinusitis is due to viral infection, then your leg weakness can be due to post-viral fatigue syndrome and needs some time to resolve completely. In addition, vitamin/nutritional (especially B-complex) may lead to a neuropathy/weakness symptoms. I would suggest keeping your nutrition high to fasten up the recovery and if your symptoms persist please consult a neurologist to evaluate other possibilities of neurological disorder. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Many patients with chronic HCV suffer from aches and pains in their joints. In my experience a large number of different joints can be involved but the commonest joints that ache are those in the hands and wrists. The pains are often minor but, occasionally, the pain can be quite severe and some patients find that they need strong painkillers to improve their symptoms.
Avatar n tn From your description of symptoms, it certainly sounds that you are suffering from post viral fatigue syndrome (after sinus infection) that may originate after a long lasting viral infection or if you had viral illness plus underlying disorder such as anemia, diabetes etc. One may experience muscle pain, headache, no refreshing sleep, malaise, pains in joints and sometimes nerve compression symptoms (tingling/weakness).
Avatar m tn The doctor said that swollen gums may be caused my any viral infection as the body fights off the infection. It sounds like I have no reason to be concerned?
Avatar m tn For roughly the last 2 months I been told by a Dr that I was fighting a viral infection all the flu symptoms went away besides my 2 mouth ulcers and diarrhea. at first the Dr said don't worry about it but how can i not if its been 2 months and still their... I'm worried that it can be something major but who knows... I just pray to god to take my pain away since its hard for me to deal with this. please if anyone can help let me know thank you!
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctor and they said they didn’t see anything but it could be due to viral infection or Candida in the larynx that cant be seen by the eye. I am seeing a specialist doc again on Thursday . I have been also having aching joints for the last 8 weeks on and off.
Avatar n tn He has lost 12 pounds, has been in and out of the hospital and each time is diagnosed with a viral infection. I was curious what your thoughts are in regards to the symptoms he has been experiencing. It all started after a work out at the gym. He was driving home and felt as if he was going to pass out. The drive home took 45 minutes when it should have only took 20. He said he kept getting lost.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, viral infections do not respond to antibiotics. For the congestion do steam inhalations. To do a steam inhalation, boil up a kettleful of water and pour this into a bowl (taking care not to get scalded). Put some Vick, or olbas oil, or any other menthol oil that you like into the hot water. Bend your head over the bowl of water and cover your head and the bowl with a towel. Breathe in the steam through your nose and out through your mouth.
Avatar f tn s face it looks like your dealing with a Viral infection, the low neutrophils are a bi product of that...meaning your more susceptible to a bacterial infection right now. The high lymphocytes indicate your body is responding to something, my guess a virus. The "do nothing" approach of the doctor is justified as there are few treatments for your average flu/viral infection/mononucleosis etc...Has your doctor done the standard titer tests for viruses? EBV, CMS, HHV etc...

Avatar f tn You could have a chronic bacterial and/or viral infection.
Avatar f tn However if you have a viral infection , even a viral flu like symptom, then it is found to be associated or resulting in Bell’s palsy. The reason or correlation is not known. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn None have made much difference except to lessen the headaches and I suppose rule out bacterial infections, so what I have is probably viral. Taking loads of vit C, garlic, horseradish, etc and resting in bed but nothing is helping. This going on for 6 weeks now, very debilitating. Any ideas appreciated!
Avatar m tn Arthritis type symptoms can be triggered by your body's reaction to a viral or bacterial infection. In this autoimmune type of arthritis, it isn't at all unusual for it to seem to affect only one side of the body, or for one side to seem worse than the other. Just because there is no visible swelling doesn't mean there isn't inflammation going on - I have joints that are severely damaged that have never swelled. Did you tell your doctor about your STD fears?
Avatar m tn Further, your symptoms are those of a non-specific viral illness of the sort that tired, fatigues travelers (as well as persons who are not traveling) get essentially all the time. The symptoms bgain well before the symptoms of HIV (but not other community acquired, non-STD viral infections) begin. I am not doubting your symptoms but am confident that they are not due to HIV.
Avatar f tn If your viral load is undetectable, then you don't have a chronic infection. As other posters have mentioned, you either have a chronic infection, or you don't. Congratulations!
Avatar f tn Polyarthritis may be immune mediated, may be associated with fever and may be treated with corticosteroids in the absence of a proven viral or previous viral infection. It is the "immune complexes", basically antigen-antibody complexes that are themselves inflammatory in joints and in small vascular beds, such as the kidneys for example. Your doctor is best situated to parse all this for you, having direct knowledge of the case. To me, it sounds like you are in good hands.
Avatar n tn I have joint pain in my distal and proximal inter-phalangeal joints of both hands, throbbing/burning muscle pain in the abductor pollicis muscles and abductor pollicis brevis of both hands, pain in the DIP/PIP joints of the foot, Throbbing/burning pain in the dlexor digitorum brevis of both feet. Also, the throbbing/burning pain is greatly increased in my hands and feet and other parts of my body after alcohol consumption. I've also tested positive for non-active EBV (mono).
Avatar m tn my doc told me that this elevation is because of viral infection and your body is fighting against it..
Avatar f tn Fever with joint pains is seen in viral fevers (especially Chickungunya), typhoid, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and other auto immune disorders. Localized infection of inflammation of joints can also cause fever and joint pains. A cyclic pattern of fever is seen in EBV or infectious mononeucleosis, malaria, autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, otitis media, endocarditis, IBS, STDs and cancers.
Avatar f tn It started over 12 months ago . I've had thyroid tests and all the regular blood test. All that has come back is that I have raised inflammation levels. My periods are irregular , my joints ache, mainly wrists and hands. My shins are very painful. I'm very tired, slight memory loss ( can't seem to find the words I want to say). Regular headaches, mega weight gain. Pins needles in my feet and hands through the night which wakes me up.
