The following post once again makes me think that the docs dose not do their work as they used to do.
Arthrit"is" means INFLAMATION of "a/-" JOINT"s".
There are several different types of arthrit"is".
What the inflamation is caused by, it's an acadmic question?! That issue the docs would be concerned by mostly! It's the most important issue! So if it caused by a car accident (trauma), a "speciffic" treatment should be taken, if it is hernia - also, if it is an infection - too,... if it is an autoimmune - totaly different approach should be taken... And,............................. it must be totaly clarified. So! I can hardly beleive that the doc is not familiar with what is the cause of your arthritis......
So, what is the cause of your arthritis Chartreux?
If *accidently* the doc is *not familiar to*, you should warn him/her that you will bring to trial if he/her does not tell you correctly what is the cause of your arthritis
Official dx, but I have doubts: chronic reiter's syndrome (1yr and 6 mnths).
