Hi doctor,

I get pain in my joints like ankle and wrist occasionally. It goes off when I take Mobizox but comes after a few days again. Also, it goes off when I do massage or when I use compression glove. My uric acid is 10 mg/dL, and it is in a higher range. Does this pain occur due to increased uric acid or it is some kind of arthritis like rheumatoid?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have arthralgia, and it is not arthritis. This condition will have pain along with swelling. It is unlikely to occur due to uric acid. You need to do a few tests which include RF (rheumatoid factor), ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), CRP (C-reactive protein), anti-CCP (anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide), vitamin D levels and TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). There is a possibility of early inflammatory arthritis which can be confirmed by the tests mentioned above.

Thank you doctor,

There is no swelling on the site of pain. But I will get the tests done.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, there is no active arthritis. So these tests are mandatory to find out the cause of the problem.
