What is reactive arthritis?

Back to Reactive arthritis

Reactive arthritis is usually a relatively short-lived condition causing painful inflammation (heat, pain and swelling) in the joints. It develops shortly after an infection of the bowel or genital tract or, less frequently, after a throat infection. It may last for up to 6 months and in most cases disappears completely, causing no problems in the future.
