Q. What is the exact cause for my knee pain and swelling?



Hi doctor,

I am a 40 year old female. My height is 5’4″ and my weight is 64 kg. I am suffering from left knee pain with some swelling and stiffness for the past three years. I am taking Sazo 2000 and OXC 200 for two months, but had no relief. I have ANA 48.5 and CRP 7.9. My MRI showed no tears, but some fluid or effusion.





Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

I had gone through all the data posted. Kindly tell me more details about your problem.

  • Since when is the pain in the left knee present? Do you have any other joint pain like wrist or elbow?
  • Your ANA (antinuclear antibody) report is positive. Kindly upload the report so that I can check the pattern of immunofluorescence and advice further.
  • How long you have used Sazo (Sulfasalazine) and OXCQ (Hydroxychloroquine)? Is there any improvement after using these drugs?
  • What about RA factor, anti-CCP (anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide) and ESR report?
  • Have you suffered from STD (sexually transmitted disease) or UTI (urinary tract infection) in the recent past?
