I am writing on behalf of my husband, who has been diagnosed with Chronic Reiter's a few years ago. The unual thing with his case is that he has probably been sick since the age of 7 (plus minus a few years) and we've been told that Reiter's usually is caused by the clamydia bacteria transmitted during sexual intercourse, alternatively caused by a stomach infection such as Salmonella, Shigella or similar bacterias. It took him almost 20 years to get diagnosed, no need to say that he's a very sick man today. He's got all the three typical symptoms of Reiter's triad: eyes, joints, prostate. I am interested to hear if anyone of you here have some info to share on this condition. Has anyone had it and been cured? Is there anyone with the chronic version, and if so, what have you been told to do? Is there any therapies, medicines, diets that works? Anything would be helpful, even just to share stories. It seems that the chronic condition is pretty rare, and such an early onset as age 7 also is unusual. Hardly any doctor we've seen has any knowledge or understanding of this disease. It breaks my heart because I am seeing my husband slowly turning into an invalid, and he's not even 40 years old yet :(
