After doing heaps of internet research I have come across reactive arthritis as a possibility...I basicly get very sore knuckles, night sweats, and a very swollen face. just about every other symptom fits also. I was wondering if anyone out there knew if this syndrome can cause a swollen face, i know it can cause all my other symptoms.....I have nearly constant infections also, foot ulcers etc. has anyone any experience with this? if so how did they get a diagnosis and what was the treatment? I want to have some knowledge when i see a doctor, Im tired of being dismissed by them. any info would be greatly appretiated!
