Hi Renee,

Sorry you're still troubled by 'arthritis'.  Get the tests done, but it is probably an Interferon-induced reactive arthritis, which is very similar to RA clinically. The RA tests will probably be negative. Relief can be obtained by a second generation NSAID like Mobic. Take the 7.5 mg tabs ( 1 daily with food), not the 15 mg. They are worth a try as I had rapid relief, but you can't take them for too long. They may cause gastric and renal problems, but are OK for the liver at that dose. My arthritis has now gone, and I'm playing a lot of golf and cycling daily. My rheumatologist said the arthritis may persist in some patients, and you just have to live with it. It's better than liver failure. Cheers XX
