Arthritis flares

Why are my joints hurting so much?! My wrists are the worst -- they don't flare that often and never at the same time, but I've had several days lately where I've had to wear splints (not just elastic braces, splints) all day. Typing hurts like hell but I needed to bitch a little.

Yesterday my right thumb was so bad I had to dig out the thumb splint I bought a couple of years ago (last time I had a thumb-joint flare) and wear that all day. My right knee desperately needs replacement, but it's been even worse than usual. I had a flare in some joint in my right foot a few days ago. And my other joints are nothing to write home about, either.

I'm hoping it has something to do with the 2-week course of Cipro I've been on for a kidney infection. The last pill was last night. I sure hope it eases up as the drug is cleared from my system. I have a very busy week with a lot to do.

Poking through info on Cipro, I see that it can have interactions with a lot of arthritis drugs, including all of the NSAIDS; maybe whatever you take for pain just isn't working while on the Cipro. So yes, it could clear up quickly! Hope so!

Ow! I hope it quiets down to a dull roar as soon as possible.

That does sound miserable. I hope you feel better soon.
