Stop inflammation: It is not easy to predict for how long the pain would last. Autoimmune conditions are chronic. I would strongly recommend getting on auto-immune Paloe diet. Get at least 30-45 min of sunshine at noon or vit D3 10kIU/day (if sunshine is NA), take Probonix probiotic, ALA 600 mg/day. You should start feeling better in 4-8 weeks.

Nonsteroids such as indomethecin are quite helpful. ...Read more

However, the risk for those carrying the gene is still very small. About 80 in every 1, 000 people in the general population carry the gene, but only 2 to 5 in every 1, 000 people have the disease.
