Migratory : Migratory arthritis, meaning that is in one joint and get better and moves to another joint is a typical presentation of rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is rare in the adult. Reactive artritis may present that way, but it would be not a frecuent presentation. The fact that it lasts only 48 hours makes it difficult and the fact that has been present foe a few weeks as well. Ussually viral diseases might present in a non tipical way and could last up to six weeks but ussually patiens have a flu like syndrome. Another transient arthritis that may present in this matter would be that asociated with n gonorrhea, but again is associated with, fever malaise, a discharge skin lesion. Since it has been there for several weeks yoy should consult your primary and see wheter he would like to determine what is going on or he would like to have the rheumatologist evaluate you. ...Read more

I have a weakly positive ANA and positive rnp. I also have fatigue, joint pain and swelling, dry cough and GERD symptoms. No raynaud's, though.?
Big picture: My first concerns are whether your gerd is real -- get endoscoped, and it may be the cause of your cough and if so this is dangerous. There are several rnp's that speak either to mixed connective tissue disease or scleroderma; the latter's unlikely with no raynaud's though gerd can mimic the esophageal troubles. Just my thoughts; others will share as well. ...Read more
